Wood frog, Sylvirana daemeli

Giddy River, Arnhem Land, NT, Australia

The family Ranidae is one of the most widespread frog groups in the world, and include the "edible" frogs of the Northern
hemisphere. In Australia the family is represented by a single species, Sylvirana daemeli. Wood Frogs, as they are known, can grow
to a body length of over 110 mm, although this individual, photographed beside the Giddy River in Arnhem Land, was only about
50mm in length. This species has several calls, including a remarkable trilling series of un-frog like whistles and pops.
