Ranoidea caerulea — Green Treefrog
Some other names for this species:
Whites Treefrog, Dumpy Treefrog
Though this is one of the more common frogs in northeast Queensland, I only managed to come across this one individual in a puddle at the side of the road near a sugar cane field. It was not interested in posing for me, and as the night was drizzly and the lights in the nearby farmhouses were coming on in apparent concern over our car's presence, I got only this one lousy photo before moving on.
Here is a complete list of the reptiles and frogs I saw on this trip to Australia.
