Cane Toads: The Conquest (PG)

Summerhall - Cinema


A documentary horror film about the environmental devastation left in the wake of the giant toads' unstoppable march across Australia.

From a strange and savage land, comes a hero unlike any you've ever known. In 1935, 102 Cane Toads are shipped to Australia from the UK to eliminate beatles destroying sugar cane crops.

90 years later: "I really doubt the IQ of those people, with all due respects"

A female Cane Toad lays 30-40,000 eggs twice per year, and did nothing to stop the beatles. A huge predator and highly toxic, the Australian Senate mandated in 2019 that welfare should be paid to citizens who hunt and kill cane toads, now estimated to be 200,000 million in population throughout Queensland alone.
