This frog is from the Liverpool area and is only very small.

Thank you
Simone

Yes it is a young Litoria caerulea, if you are talking about Liverpool in Sydney good work at finding it, cuase they are quite rare in Sydney now.

Thank you everyone for your help identifying this little froggy.

Yes this frog was found in the Liverpool Area of Sydney.
Thank you for letting me know that it is a rare frog.

I was helping a friend at work to ID it and am glad that I was not sure of what it was and let the experts have a look. I will look into where they are and if they are in an area where they can live safely.


I'm quite new with frogs and am just starting to learn a bit about them and am enjoying reading through everyones responses on how to identify frogs and their tadpoles.

I am in contact with frogs mainly through my uni studies and working in the Liverpool area, though am going to start trying to identify them by their calls when I am near water bodies. At the moment they are sounding very similar, though I am sure this will change with time.

If anyone has a suggestion on how I can learn the calls of frogs I'd be very interested to know.
I have heard that there is a CD available to help and I plan to buy some frog ID books for the Sydney Region.

Thank you again
Simone :)

There is a frog id section on this website, also www.frogsaustralia.net.au is pretty good, there are also various books and cds which help you to id frogs, take a look in a australian geographic store or a good bookstore for them.

Thank you for your suggestions tnarg.
I've had a look at the web site and am sure it will be helpful :)

I have an australian geographic shop near my home so will pop in and take a look at their frog cds and books.

Thank you :) sim
