A giant cane toad dubbed “Toadzilla” has been discovered in Australia.
The amphibian, which weighs 2.7kg, shocked rangers who stumbled across it at the Conway National Park in North Queensland.
The 25cm-long pest, dubbed Toadzilla, was found by Department of Environment and Science rangers who were clearing a hiking trail in Conway National Park in north-west Queensland last week.
The average cane toad weighs 450grams, while Toadzilla was six times larger at 2.7kg.
‘[It looked] almost like a football with legs,’ Ranger Kylee Gray said.
