Sure, and then the auratus carry a previously undetected pathogen to Maryland, where the cane toads contract that pathogen, and then pass it to amphibians who move it down the east coast, where it eventually spreads into the Appalachians and infects amphibians there....
I think you misunderstood. The scenario I found humorous was completely fabricated, and thus separate from the realities of species introduction.
The one you described is not humorous, and it was not what I was describing.
I don't believe I promoted introducing new species into foreign environments.
