Foxes would have the same, if not MORE, of any impact than Cane Toads.
do u have any pics of the fox's you shot? well done btw!
yes alot more than canetoads,i was reading that even after the devastation they have caused canetoads have not caused an extinction of a species,however i just cut and pasted this:
The European red fox(Vulpes vulpes) was introduced to mainland Australia as early as the 1850's. Since that time the fox has inflicted enormous impacts on the native wildlife of Australia, being implicated in the extinction of many native animals. Indeed, Australia's apalling record of mammal extinctions in the last 200 years - the worst in the world - is in no small part due to the fox.
they are worried in tasmania as foxes have turned up there and if not eradicated early,say good bye to some very beautiful mammal species forever.
