Frog/Toad Id

Postby Adz Central Coast » Sun Apr 02, 2017 7:36 pm

G'day Folks

Found this little fella washed out of my overflowing downpipe on the NSW Central Coast and was wondering what it might be? Have relocated to our big Birds Nest fern which is close to the original home pipe and he/she now looks pretty settled and comfortable.

It looks about 60mm long with orange spots between leg and torso.

Nice find, it is a Peron's Tree Frog (Litoria peroni). They are a great frog to have around the home and adapt well to urban environments and backyards.
