Asian black-spined toad (Duttaphrynus melanostictus)
Detected in Perth (Cloverdale). A single toad was found in Cloverdale, which is just 10km east of Perth city and close to Perth Airport. The Asian black-spined toad is the cooler climate version of the cane toad that is devastating northern Australia. Despite being slightly smaller it has the same poison glands and a voracious appetite. No sign of other Asian black-spined toads has been found so far.
