Default cane toads

http://www.science-frontiers.com/sf127/sf127p08.htm

Amused by this article reporting how Australian dogs discovered they
can get themselves "high" by carefully sampling a cane toad's toxin.

I expected to find it was published on April 1, but not so.

Maybe these Qld mutts were just following their owner's bad example?

really dead

Nature is bizarre. Makes me think of this article about how goldfish produce ethanol: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/now-we-know-how-goldfish-produce-alcohol-180964502/

Who would have thought?
