- 47 min
"Cane Toads: An Unnatural History" (1988) is an Australian documentary about how cane toads came to Australia. Cane toads, which are native to Central and South America, were brought to Australia in the hopes they would eat the cane beetle, a pest that was demolishing Australia's sugar cane. Instead, the toads became a pest themselves. Part of the problem is that they have no natural enemies in Australia, and their toxic skin secretions makes them dangerous to native predators.
