… and some more frogs

I recently stayed one night at Girraween National Park while on a work trip, and it was a stormy summer night. Perfect, of course, for checking the frogs around Bald Rock Creek!

Bleating Tree Frog (Litoria dentata)

Emerald Spotted Tree frog (Litoria peronii)

Broad-palmed Rocket Frog (Litoria latopalmata)

Stony Creek Frog (Litoria wilcoxii)

Clikcing Froglet (Crinea signifera)

Ornate Burrowing Frog (Platyplectrum ornatum)

There’s one species of frog at Girraween that I’ve never seen — the New England Treefrog (Litoria subglandulosa). Classed as ‘vulnerable’, this fog is only found in a small area of wet sclerophyll and heath country in the granite country of the Queensland/New South Wales border.To see an image of this beautiful species, check out this great image on this wonderful website on Girraween National Park.

    In the United States, when we hear “New England” we think of the six states in the northeast corner of our country. With that in mind, I’m glad to learn that the New England tree frog is endemic to Australia.

      Thanks, Steve. Have just been enjoying your blog, some beautiful images. Looks like your part of the world has much to keep a photographer and naturalist busy. Cheers and all the best, Rob.

    I love Girraween National Park but have only been there twice. Another excellent collection of frog shots, Rob. I really don’t see many frogs about here but out west we saw so many species, including the beautiful crucifix frogs. Thanks for sharing such beautiful images of one of my favourite critters. 🙂
