    Perhaps the blueys will be kind enough to pass it up the food chain, possibly as gut content

    If you are legit (and i'm not sure that you are) i would be interested to know if the keelback is currently healthy. Keelbacks can survive the bufo toxin but it is not good for them, large doses still kill the animal.
    Gordo- I like it like that

    Frogs make up part of their diet so toads would definatley be in there. And the numbers of bluetongues around Darwin dropped dramatically when the toads turned up. I only recall seeing one after the toads arrived.

    Interesting...wonder if their is any difference between acquired resistance to a venom and acquired resistance to a poison.

    Good to hear, those annoying toads are a massive problem...
    I saw an enclosure at the Australian Reptile Park with 2 of them (For educational purposes), they LITERALLY sat in the EXACT SAME position for the whole day I was there! (I kept on coming back to look at the mertens.)
