Hi nice sharing. The green frogs are all Green Tree Frogs (Litoria caerulea), the brown round one in your hand is, Ornate Burrowing Frog Platyplectrum ornatus. The skink is a species of Ctenotus but without better pictures I cannot ID it. The Gecko on the white backround is an Asian House Gecko, Hemidactylus frenatus and I think the other is too but am not sure. Love the Gilbert's Dragons.Keeper, breeder and photographer of geckos.
Yeah i knew wat the gekoes and green frogs were just wasnt sure about the brown frog wich u have just informed me of as for the Ctenotus i was pretty sure it was one of them just wasnt sure of the exact species but i will try and get some better pics on a day when its not so overcast,thanx again for ur help

No problems. Sorry about not reading the numbers but the picture order changes each time I load the thread so I ID'd the ones you hadn't named.
Btw that brown frog can be extremely variable ranging from whitish to yellow/gold and with numerous varieties of patterns, they are likely one of the most common frogs in semi-arid Qld.Keeper, breeder and photographer of geckos.

Would love to have those frogs in my yard!!!Before you criticize some one walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them you're a mile away.................... And you have their shoes!!!
Haha thats all good mate,Oh thats intresting to know about the brown frog.......i do try and get out herping around here as much as i can but with no car of my own makes it quite difficult,but the times i have been out ive seen some beautiful species most of wich i had only ever seen in books over the years,so im really loving living here in Mt Isa compared to the big City of Sydney wich i moved from
Hey Sarah,i see them every single night here in my backyard,some of wich will eat moths from my hand,(before anyone blasts me about that i have only done it a couple of times because i dont want them being reliant on humans for food) lol
