Broad Palmed Frog - Litoria latopalmata

Normf

Emerald Beach, Australia

Artist's Description

Obviously a “Rocket Frog” I originally mistook this to be a lighter morph of the Rocket Frog (Litoria nasuta) which is sympatric with every species in this complex through at least part of its range. This frog ranges from light to dark brown on its back, sometimes with darker blotches. This frog, typical of “Rocket Frogs” was hard to photograph once it left the water, having abundant energy, fast long jumps of over a meter (given this was only a 35 mm specimen) and a natural dislike of nosey photographers!!!
