Australian Frogs

I came across these pictures of a Brown Tree Frog I rescued from the cats a couple of years ago and thought I'd post them. I have lots of frog pictures if I look for them, so as I come across them or take more I'll post them in this thread. I don't have this frog anymore as I put it outside in a terrarium knowing it could probably escape but I was just getting it away from the cats by putting it in the back yard which is the dogs territory.
Anyway, these two pictures are of the same frog on different days in almost exactly the same spot in the terrarium.

Man I love your local animals threads! Keep it up!
I've really got to go through my computer and organise the pictures, I have so many. Lately I've just been using my phone or netbook so I can sit near the heater. Frogs and lizards make good subjects because they sit still mostly, my blue tongue skink excepted. I've had her since she was born and she must be pushing ten but still hisses and runs when she sees me, I've got lots of pics of her tail disappearing down her burrow.

I keep them very simply, a tank with hollow logs buried in about 4" of substrate and feed gourmet dog or kitten food, snails, kangaroo or beefheart and a wide range of fruit and veg. In winter I let them brumate and offer easily digested food when they become active again.

@MassExodus , I came across these photos of a baby blue tongue dug up in the middle of winter. I tried not to show injuries in this set of pictures but one side of the face was cut pretty deeply and there were other injuries.
I miss the lizard but not my old camera!

Excellent! They show some attitude huh? :D How did this one do? Recuperate alright? I see videos of adults that are big fat docile tittybabies. Their faces are awesome!

I came across this Brown Tree Frog the other day so I took some pictures before letting it go in the pond. The light was fantastic for photography, the sunlight plus the flash really highlighted the various shades of brown on the frog. This is the same species as above.

Now that the frogs are warm and active again I thought I'd get some pictures. Not the best pictures of them and they look a bit skinny after winter but I'll post them anyway. If nothing else when I take another batch you'll see how much weight they put on over summer.
There are a pair of Green Tree Frogs, also known as White's Tree Frog, Litoria caerulea, and a Pobblebonk Frog, also known as The Eastern banjo frog Limnodynastes dumerilii dumerilii but I call her (I think her) Donk. Green Tree Fogs can be territorial and are one of the few frogs that will call purely to establish territory but after a little bit of dominating behaviour Donk fitted into the community and they all get along great.

He moved but it's interesting to see the start of the jump I thought.
