It's hard enough photographing the plants without having to do the livestock as well!
   23 Feb 2015
Wow you are quick to pounce Mike! :) Nice one...! This is a TEST ONLY as we are investigating the expansion of the site into Fauna. But this was a real sighting, I found this baby Frog tonight in my front hedges while cleaning up the front courtyard!!! Any idea what he is? Baby Peron's Tree Frog?

I don't think it is a tree frog. Check with the Frogwatch people. It would be good to add fauna as long as we don't get swamped with kangaroos.

This is good feedback Mike, thanks. I guess it's a bit like plants and saying "as long as we don't get swamped with Dandelions" or gum trees or something! The good thing is we can similarly classify animals into endangered, common and pests etc. So based on an agreed taxonomy, the less important sightings can basically disappear into the background and the juicy stuff bubbles up to the top and also we ensure that government know about the location of any endangered little critters so they are well protected etc.

I am pretty sure it is a pobblebonk (Lymnodynastes dumerillii). A size estimate would be useful as a pobblebonk is the largest of the 9 ACT frogs. Also called the Eastern banjo frog. I think that including wildlife as well as plants on this site is a great idea although if insects are included we may end up with lots of 'unable to be identified' species because there are so many that are similar. Maybe we can just get to the family level of ID. An extra box for size would definitely be useful to help with the ID. What about birds? Are they included too?

My device is weird it spams a lot Also, this is a tricky one since it looks like a couple of different species Like the Plains Froglet, eastern froglet and Smooth toadlet
   22 Apr 2015
I also agree with mike it definitely isn't a tree frog because they generally have smooth skin whereas this one is more warty.

I think it looks most like a Plains froglet because of its colouring and the way it is sitting

I agree with plains froglet. If it was a smooth toadlet, I would expect to see the orange patches on its thigh. Identifying frogs is much easier when you know what its call was like

Hi Angus- how to reject the Uperoleia laevigata suggestions??? Just leave them like this??
   24 Nov 2015
Hi AM,

Yep they're fine. They just stay sitting there to show the thought process and suggestion history of all contributors before it got to your final confirmed decision of Crinia parinsignifera. Cheers Aaron.

Thanks again- thought I might need to work it out with Angus, as he had suggested the other species- enjoy your evening!!
