I saw Crows learning to eat Cane Toads near Murwillumbar in 1989, then last
year I saw Torresian Crows doing the same here on campus at PAU, Papua New

They open them up at the cloaca, and work forwards, leaving the poison
glands on the shoulders.

Three cheers for the Crows.  It is also good to hear that some other
species are learning to deal with them.
