Toxic path threatens animals in Madagascar

stuttgart - A poisonous path threatens the animal world on the island of Madagascar. According to German researchers, of the 77 species that eat frogs, there is only one file against the poison in the black scar path.

The paddy species probably made a few years ago in a cargo building material for a nickel and cobalt mine crossing to the island, which has a unique flora and fauna with animal species that only occur there. The animal has now increased significantly in number.

According to the researchers at the State Museum of Natural History in Stuttgart, only a rodent that eats toads is resistant to the poison of the toad. 'Our data confirm that the invasive toads are likely to have a major impact on many native species in Madagascar and that this will aggravate the existing nature conservation problems,' said one of the researchers.

For a 'hunt' on the path, according to the researchers it is too late. The hope is that the animals themselves learn that they should not eat the toads.
