Do they bother to check if they are cane toad tadpoles, or aren't they poisonous at that stage?

Delicacy tadpoles?  Ahhh ok, like smoked salmon, Alaskan king crab, bbq brisket, Kumamoto oysters, pecan pie or wild blueberry cheesecake?

Toad Boy was once a cane toad tadpole. His parents have a lot to answer for.

A friend used to say: "with a tad of mustard, even your old grandpa taste good."

Except their own excrement, is there anything in the swamps or behind tree skins they refuse to eat in the hub of food hygiene and kitchen of the world?

No, I would say more like escargot, Russian caviar, casu marzu or century eggs.

The other day a Thai woman asked me 'you eat salmon'? Bet, she'd like tadpoles better. 😣

What's the best cooking method, or are they taken raw and squirmy down the gullet?  Any recipes?  Use a pinch of wasabi/soy and don't chew.
