    No lions and tigers, only crocodiles. And many many feral/introduced cane toads that have caused massive decreases in several predator species - most commonly snakes, monitors/goannas, northern spotted quoll.
    Interested in making a cane toad compost?

    no, i'm way over in the USoA in mid-Michigan so there are no cane toads here to contend with. deer around here are pests but they get run over by cars and such. have not had to compost one of those yet, but i have buried a wild turkey...
