    Australia's popular Kimberley wilderness region has resorted to a long knee-high fence to keep out the poisonous cane toad, which is rapidly overrunning the tourist attraction. The cane toad has spread widely in tropical Australia since being introduced to kill beetles in the 1930s, devouring insects, bird's eggs and native species. A recent investigation by the University of Melbourne showed that the toad has an Achilles' heel and by placing a small fencing around sources is enough to cause the toad to die of dehydration and stop its advance.
