Gooday Sharina,
I have observed a relationship between dead cane toads beneath the nests of
Brahminy Kite and Black Kite Milvus migrans. All Cane Toads had the soft
belly area eaten away while the poison glands on the hind neck were intact.
I call it a relationship as I have not actually observed these species
actually eating a Cane Toad but the evidence seems to point in that
I have also heard reports of Torresian Crow feeding on Cane Toads.
Trust this will assist.
