Cane Toad Eggs
Cane Toad eggs are laid in long strings and are quite different to the eggs of native species in Northern Australia.
The strings are continuous and usually over a metre in length. The jelly strings contains small black eggs held in the jelly.
Often the eggs are laid in shallow water and they may be wound through vegetation or sticks in the shallows.
Most of our native frogs lay eggs in small clumps like the ones pictured to the right (Litoria torneri eggs). Some natives lay their eggs in small foam clumps, some lay them individually. None of the native frogs eggs are in long strings.
Cane toad egg strings are so strong they can be pulled from the water and discarded. If you find the eggs in the water you can pull them from the water (See picture below.) and dispose of them before they hatch into tadpoles.
