Australian National Rugby League Uses 'Australian Rats' in Ad Campaign

In America, we have rats and other sorts of pests that are undesirable. In Australia, apparently toads fall into the pest category and are illegal to be brought in from the wild. This is exactly what the NRL's ad agency, MJW Hakuhodo, did for new a television commercial. In the commercial, Brisbane Broncos captain Gorden Tallis is seen releasing cane toads in Sydney's Aussie Stadium.

What's really interesting is that an Australian National Parks & Wildlife spokesperson said, "bringing cane toads into NSW is not only illegal, it has a potentially devastating effect on thousands of native animals and pet dogs,"

Just how big are these frogs?

UPDATE: Upon further reading, I guess they are toxic.
