Toad Day Out rules: 1. Toads must be alive and un­harmed or they will not be el­i­gi­ble. 2. Toads must be at least 5cm long. 3. All toads will be iden­ti­fied by ex­perts to make sure that no na­tive frogs are brought in by mis­take. 4. All toads will then be dis­posed of hu­manely and given to JCU and a lo­cal taxi­der­mist. 5. Cat­e­gories in­clude heav­i­est toad and heav­i­est to­tal weights of toads for peo­ple un­der and over 13 years of age. There will also be a prize for the school with the most toads by weight.
