I recently went out for a day with the Kimberley Toad Busters, a community group trying to stop the cane taod getting from the Northern Territory into Western Australia. I found this toad at Gregory's Tree in the NT. He had probably been burnt in a grassfire and pecked at by a bird. Nevertheless, he was very much alive and a testament to the resiliance of individual toads. Presumably he would have eventually starved to death.
