Critters - feeding Floyd and Meg

Last night when I went to feed Floyd and Meg I saw an enormous green frog sitting on Meggie's water bucket. She was ignoring it, I guess she was hungry. Who am I kidding? She's always hungry!

As I was feeding Meg the frog jumped up into the arcmesh gate and sat there until I finished feeding meg and nipped back up to the house to get the camera. When I arrived back the frog leapt off the gate and into the grass and leaves. Froggie was headed for the long grass still up near the back side of the BFS - this is where the snakes hunt frogs! But hopefully this frog will be safe as I've got some snake scarers putting vibrations into the ground.


I couldn't get a better shot of the frog because she was travelling!
Those brown leaves would be bigger than a bread a butter plate, and some of them are even bigger than that (the tri-lobal ones are bigger than a bread and butter plate).

Hi Merilyn
It was an enormous green frog, easily 15cm from nose to tail, not including legs 'n all.

Love that BIG green frog, that is a very good size, so where ever it has been living it has done quite well.

Beautiful photos Kae.

That's an Australian frog. Bound to be deadly.

Cute, but deadly.
