Big Cane Toad – Sarina

Built out of Paper Mache in 1983, for a float in the Apex Sugar Festival Parade, the Sarina council eventually cast the Big Toad in fiberglass to become a permanent fixture in the town’s centre. He is one of the ugliest Big Things I’ve come across both in aesthetics and subject matter but that’s what gives the Big Toad amazing appeal, well to me anyway! Oh and you can call him “Buffy”, short for the cane toad’s scientific name ‘Bufo Marinus’.
