  • Researchers discovered a record-breaking cane toad in Queensland, Australia, that was so big, they nicknamed it “Toadzilla,” the BBC reported Thursday.
  • “Toadzilla” is six times the size of an average toad, weighing in at 2.7 kilograms — a potential world record, the BBC reported. Park ranger Kylee Gray discovered it while she was out on patrol in the north Australian rainforest in Queensland, and was quickly placed in a container and taken back to a base to be weighed.
  • “There was a red-belly black snake on the track in front of us … so we stopped to let the snake pass and got out of the vehicle and right next to us was this huge cane toad,” Gray told Australian Broadcast Corporation. “It flinched when I walked up to it and I yelled out to my supervisor to show him.”
