    Hi,

    I'm afraid I know nothing at all about frogs except that my local Tiger Snake friends really seem to like them! So I was wondering if anyone could tell me what these two species are. I found them both in a pond in Melbourne's Eastern Suburbs today. Thanks in advance.

    Cheers,
    Tim

    The second frog is Southern brown tree frog, Litoria ewingii

    The first frog may be Eastern dwarf tree frog, Litoria fallax,though I am unsure because the distribution does not go down that far according to the good ole interwebs.
