To Croak With Love

I have our good friend Glenn Dunks to thank for reminding me that I have been wanting to watch the 1988 documentary Cane Toads: An Unnatural History for a very long time -- the film tells the story of the invasive frog menace in Australia (a plague, you might say!) and it's supposedly, if people like Glenn are to believed, Can't Miss. 

It's just one of the ten Aussie Docs that Glenn tells us are Can't Miss in his new piece for The Guardian, which is also Can't Miss! Go over and read it! And then come back and watch the first-fifth of the Cane Toads doc which is awesomely uploaded onto YouTube. (From there you can click through to see the rest.) I know what I'll be watching on my subway ride home tonight.

I use clips from this documentary whenever I teach about invasive species. As they say, Monty Python meets the documentary.
