'Kiss me, baby'

Do you think Sweet Lips will turn into a prince?

Watch out, he's got an even bigger, uglier sister, and they're both poisonous.

from AP:

DARWIN, Australia - An environmental group said Tuesday it had captured a "monster" toad the size of a small dog. With a body the size of a football and weighing nearly 2 pounds, the toad is among the largest specimens ever captured in Australia, according to Frogwatch coordinator Graeme Sawyer.

"It's huge, to put it mildly," he said. "The biggest toads are usually females but this one was a rampant male ... I would hate to meet his big sister."

The frogs, imported from South America in the 1930s, are wreaking havoc on the local ecology.

There are worse things than being without a prince.
