Toad like unidentified near Grafton NSW

Postby JamesPat » Sun Jan 11, 2015 11:48 pm

I would like to double check that this is not a Cane Toad. We are on the edge of the region, south of the Clarence about 2 km. We have felt that it is not, maybe a Burrowing Frog, Toadlet or Sign Bearing Froglet. It does not seem to have the definite M shape near the nose (not sure if pic clear on that) But with its distinctive toad look, we just want to be certain. We appreciate the time you take to look at the attached photos, I hope they are of a quality to assist. Thanks James

That's what I was thinking it would be if it was around that size.

Hi James,

Yes its definitely a Banjo Frog, I wouldn't rule out the possibility it's a Northern Banjo Frog (Limnodynastes terraereginae) in that part of the world.
