Frog rescue. Laid eggs. Seeking ID.

Postby tjt263 » Thu Oct 13, 2016 5:14 am

This frog wandered into my house looking very dehydrated and exhausted.

Fixed her up and she laid a bunch of eggs.
I have saved most of them in bowls of water.

Can I get an ID?

I guess either Growling Grass Frog (Litoria raniformis) or Green and Golden Bell Frog (Litoria aurea). It does depend on your location - if you're over in SW WA it could even be a Motorbike frog (Litoria moorei). I'm not an expert by any means at identification though, sorry!
