Dear community, found this little frog in our bathroom sink. We live in western Sydney. Can someone assist with an ID please and any tips on how to safely relocate it outside. We have a pond and a rather leafy backyard so should be happier out there. thank you.

I can't ID it, but to safely move it outside, wash your hands thoroughly, rinse really well, then with wet hands, carefully catch him and carry him out - frogs absorb things through their skins so it's important to make sure you hands are clean and wet. HTH, good luck!

Thanks Chris ! He seems to have disappeared to wherever he came from, but will take your advice if I find him!

Nice find, it looks like a Peron's Tree Frog (Litoria peroni). They seem to like living around houses and do well in urban areas.
