What are the toads currently doing in Australia?

Toads in Australia are thriving, unfortunately, and continuing their relentless spread south from the humid northern tropics. It is of great concern that these amphibians continue to proliferate, adapting to cooler temperatures as their population spreads further into the southern states. They have already contributed to the decline of many native species. native frogs are particularly at risk, while the spotted quoll population has also been affected, as these carnivorous marsupials try to eat the toads and end up being poisoned.
