Hi Troy,

It doesn't quite seem to fit either of those, although some photos of L. caerulea from SE Qld look vaguely/~similar... possibly a juvenile. The white stripe on the upper lip's also interesting.

Do you think it might be unwell because of the colour or was it behaving strangely?

Hopefully Aaron might be able to give some more clues shortly.

I'm thinking it's just a malnourished caerulea metamorph. He went to an amphibian carer in the area and has reached his expected weight and been released.

Would agree :wink:

Glad to hear he/she's recovered well and returned home.
