Bob Katter has one upped fellow Queenslander Pauline Hanson's cash-for-cane-toad plan.

Earlier this week Ms Hanson suggested welfare recipients get paid 10 cents for each toad collected.

But Mr Katter has gone one better and says people should be paid 40 cents per toad.

And he believes kids should be given air rifles to do it!

But NT environmentalists have already shut down the idea.

Graeme Sawyer says she a scheme would be ineffective.
