An ode to the toad!

In these socially distant times of ours, we have a special episode dedicated to an underrated amphibian: the cane toad!

We dispel myths like: "They're Australian, aren't they?" Er, no.

Or: "They are sadistic killers of all life on Earth, aren't they?" Again, no... and after this episode, we hope you will agree that they are simply gorgeous animals.
