What frog is this?

By p1 - 2 December 2013 11

frog

Found this morning living in an infrequently used subaru. Anyone know what type he is?

Also, anyone want to fix my head gasket problems for me? :(

Peron’s Tree Frog, otherwise known as Maniacal Cackling Frog. A female too…

My guess is Litoria peroni – Peron’s Tree Frog – http://frogs.org.au/frogs/species/Litoria/peroni/

Well if they milk those little frogs for Peroni, I think I’ll stick with Coopers.

For my Animal Systematics exam, we had to be able to name a heap of frogs by sound. The differences are incredible. Trail bike, velociraptor, cricket, emu, etc.
No need though to come up with a mnemonic for the Pobblebonk… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJkUjUhObK8

Things like this “key guide” help you ID species. Start with whether they have pads or fingers and toes (inc “opposing” thumbs). http://frogs.org.au/frogs/key.html

Cross-like pupil is a dead giveaway for L. peroni, though.

Thanks for that link! I can never make sense of descriptions of frog calls. In our new Gungers development, we may not have wildlife like possums, but we do have plenty of frogs. Lots of different sounding calls and the only one I can confidently identify is the Pobblebonk.
