Gorgeous Frog....what is it?

Postby lisypie66 » Mon Sep 05, 2005 10:58 am

Can someone identify this frog I saw at our back door? The photo doesn't do it justice. Fat little thing. It has orange blaze of colour along it's side, and black markings. I see why so many mistake frogs for toads at night. Cheers

Looks like a Limnodynastes terraereginae (Northern pobblebonk or Banjo frog) to me. I just posted a pic of a pair of them in the "Encounters" section of this forum. We only get them when we get lots of rain. They spend most of their life underground and only come out to mate and eat.
