    Nice frogs, Geckoman is correct the frog is a Scarlet-sided Pobblebonk (Limnodynastes terraereginae).

    Haha I think pobblebonk is the greatest name in the history of the universe. Do they go "pooble... bonk"?

    My opa has 2 at his house, they lie spread-eagle and are so unconcerned, you can literally reach out and touch them! I suppose most possums just aren't afraid of people.
