Artist's Description

Sorry I couldn’t help myself this frog was on the window outside my daughters bedroom and I just had to know if there was any truth to the old saying.
Litoria moorei is a frog well known in Southwest Australia, its notoriety deriving from the call suggestive of a common name, the Motorbike Frog. It is a ground dwelling tree frog of the Hylidae family, one of only three species of Hylids occurring in that region. One common name comes from the male frog’s mating call which sounds similar to a motorbike changing up through gears; it is also known as Moore’s Frog, the Western Bell Frog, the Western Green and Golden Bell Frog, and the Western Green Tree Frog.Typical of tree frogs, it has toe pads which enable it to climb smooth vertical surfaces.(Hence the Photo) Thanks wiki
