Garden of Red Mill House, Daintree, Queensland, Australia—February 14, 2003
This handsome frog spent most days on the raincover of the motorcycle owned by Andrew and Trish, proprietors of the highly-recommended Red Mill House Bed and Breakfast. They were surprised not to find it there when I was inquiring about the local frog population. Surely it had not chosen this day to take a vacation? Fortunately, such was not the case; it had merely settled for this day on a banister a few feet away from its usual perch.
Here is a complete list of the reptiles and frogs I saw on this trip to Australia.
