ID Frog please

Postby b3rni3 » Fri Jun 22, 2007 9:17 pm

Hi, I'm new to all this and hope some one can ID this little fella for me. He lives around a small fish pond I have and most nights you can hear his "click". I was able to track him down one night and got this photo. So if anyone can help me it would be appreciated.

Hey,

The frog in the photo looks like a young Striped Marsh Frog (Limnodynastes peroni) and their call is generally likened to be a "toc" noise. The "click" that you hear may be Common Eastern Froglets (Crinia signifera) which are a lot smaller and hide very well amongst vegetation.

Cheers

Aaron

Yes Striped Marsh Frog, you should get used to what they look like, they are one of the most common frogs in eastern Aus and I'm sure you will be seeing plenty more of them.
