The surface of the house dam was all dotted in foamy bits, and frogs were a-croaking everywhere. So we got up early the next morning, after the rain, and went on down to inspect…
And suddenly i’m five again and searching for taddies. thank you milkwood family.
It’s a good indicator that your environment is healing itself (that’s if it was upset to start with) and very suitable for frog habitation. We have about 6 different varieties living happily at our place ranging from small green to large green, small brown to large brown and grey ones and some with spots too.
Thats beautiful! A great share, made me smile!
This is absolutely magical. The way nature responds to change is fascinating.
Awesome! So glad you guys got some rain!
So good to see rain in your part of the country. Always pleasing to hear the frogs after a good shower at night.
Let’s hope you don’t have Cane Toad yet. The way to tell the eggs apart, is that frogs lay eggs in a frothy bunch, and cane toads are actually a ‘string’ of eggs. Grab a twig and see if you can unravel the eggs into a ‘string’ of eggs like beads. If you can, you would be wise to further investigate.
The horrible cane toad is migrating and making it’s way south. I live on high on Atherton Tablelands in Far Nth Qld. where is cold and frosty winter, toads here survive quite well, not as prolific as the coastal areas round Cairns and Townsville, but they are in such numbers that we do a seasonal cull.
Cane Toads are a worry to permaculture because they upset the balance of the normal predator/pest relationship, and prey on all native species of frogs and other predators.

So glad, was praying for rain after you posted the dry dam pic!
