Sand Dune Discovery

Postby PossumPete » Wed Aug 24, 2016 1:30 pm

Hi everyone,

Pete here - I take school groups out into the Victorian coastal environment to remove weeds and plant trees. The other day we came across this beauty right up the top of the Torquay sand dunes, I think we had uncovered it during our weeding and trampling of the dune. There is a permanent wetland / dam at the base of the dune but I was still quite surprised to find it.

The filename gives away what I think it is, but thought I should throw it open for the forum.

Nice find, it looks like an Eastern Banjo Frog (Limnodynastes dumerilli dumerilli).
