Froggy Friday!!!! This pic of a motorbike frog (Litoria moorei) was captured by Sophie Cross @squamataout. This species is found in the south-west of Western Australia, and their interesting name comes from their distinct call – which has two components – a rising series of tones (similar to a motorbike changing gears, giving them their common name), followed by a series of warbling growls. Thanks for sharing your pic with us Sophie! #wildlifephotography #frogsofinstagram #australianfrogs #frog #motorbikefrog #australia #froggyfriday
Varying colour morphs of Litoria moorei.
Some nights there unfortunately isn’t much in the way of herps to find, but we did stumble upon a couple of frog populations along Brookton Highway the other night. Mostly motorbike frogs and slender tree frogs, but all with pretty beautiful colourations.
