Length: Average, 50cm.
Adaptable and intelligent like its North American, European, African and Asian relatives, it has learned how to kill and eat the introduced poisonous Cane toad without ingesting the poison by flipping them onto their backs and delivering a lethal blow with its powerful bill. It seems to recognize the significance of anyone carrying a gun and quickly makes itself conspicuous by its absence.
Food: A typical crow in that it will take just about anything. It has been seen taking stranded fish on the seashore, carrion, human food scraps, fruit and insects.
Nest: Two to four eggs in large stick nest high in a tree.
Voice: Quite different from the Australian raven. A nasal uk-uk-uk-uk-uk or sometimes an ok-ok-ok-ok.
