What frog is this
« on: October 24, 2021, 09:58:58 PM »
Hi swaggers, anyone have an interest in frogs/toads that can identify this dude. It is in the south east Queensland area of Nanango.
It has red/scarlet markings on the underside of its legs. Can’t find it via google.

Could be a Northern Banjo Frog.






They are local to our/your region.

I saw reference only yesterday to: https://inaturalist.ala.org.au/

It lets you take a photo, upload it & it will come back with suggestions as to what it may be.

Haven't yet had a chance to try it out, but certainly looks handy!

Thanks FIzzie 👍. I reckon we will get a bit of use out of this app, as we quite often see things in our travels that we don’t recognise.
Downloaded the app, uploaded the photo (after trimming to include as little background ‘noise’ as possible) and pressed enter. The app came back with ‘here are some suggestions for the image’.
Trimming the photo to the extent I did has resulted in a big ‘half’ of the image only😕

Thanks all for your responses. General consensus is a pobblebonk frog.

Actually we’re all just following the rules that have been clearly highlighted several times recently.

What we have noticed is that some people’s political rants don’t get moderated like others do…..

Those images I posted are from the ‘frog ID app’ created by the Australian museum.

https://www.frogid.net.au

It’s a specific frog identification tool, but has worked every time we’ve wanted to find out who was making specific noises in the garden.
Both using the microphone with the frog call identify feature and the photos.

Every summer our dam comes alive with Pobblebonks, Rocket frogs and a few other varieties, especially after good rain or storm.
It's kind of nice for an hour or two, but they quite often go from late afternoon to early morn! The dam is about 80 metres from the house. I'd hate to have it any closer!

The combined froggie calls are a bit reminiscent of a corroboree.  :D

It’s now frog identification week for anyone that’s interested.

https://www.frogid.net.au

With all this rain that’s currently forecast for the east of the country they should get some good results this year.

We had 8 juvenile frogs in roughly 10 square metres, on the rear porch the other night. Bloody dogs were going apesh1t cause they could see them through the back door. Fortunately we had already closed the dog flap, otherwise we could have had french poodles 🐸 instead of Jack Russell’s.

One of the good things about moving to southern Australia is you can listen to frog calls and not bl00dy cane toad calls (yet). It was like that when we lived in Jabiru in the 80s. Unfortunately not so now. Have to be some good things, the fact that today's and tomorrow's max is 13 isn't one of them though. Come on it's mid NOVEMBER!! Hopefully any errant toads will freeze.
