What frog is this?

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? 🙁

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

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.

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

Looks like a Peron’s Tree Frog to me

I love their calls

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

Can’t help with the frog, but Mick Harding will take care of the gasket…

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

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