See the moment our clever crows make a meal of a cane toad

Earlier this year, photographer Steve Wilson captured the moment a pair of crows made a meal of a cane toad. As this highly poisonous amphibian disperses across northern Australia, the numbers of predators attempting to eat them are crashing. The most notable victims are quolls, goannas and certain snakes, which have been all but wiped out in some regions. Crows, however, have learnt how to eat toads by avoiding the most toxic parts.
