This little guy or gal was in amongst the silverbeet this morning when I was watering. He just hopped right out past where my eyes were looking. I was quite surprised as we often hear frogs at night but we've not seen one yet.
I'd really like to know the species, just out of curiosity. The last couple of years we've noticed frogs singing in the evening where we hadn't really before for a long time. We're either doing something right or they're fast running out of habitat and have to take what they can get... or both I suppose.
I have no idea if this frog is one of the 'locals'. They all make the same repetitive regular rythmic call, much like a cicada might... only 'froggier' lol it's definately not a Motorbike frog as far as I have heard... although I did just find this pic... which is a young motorbike frog...
I've tried Googling 'frogs WA' to see what this frog is and have narrowed it down to two frogs, but I'm not sure... Spotted Thigh(ed) Frog seems most likely..?
Eta the black is just a bit of garden on the frog. :) Perhaps this one's still a juvenile and his/her colours will come through completely soon? I found this pic and think it's the closest I've seen so far but there's no name to the pic in terms of what kind of frog it is. Apologies for the blurry pic.
Either way I am rapt the frogs are here!
