A global citizen science platform to discover, share and identify wildlife
Sounds awesome, thanks Jacqui! : )
Oh great! If you are ever interested in coming along frog watching with us give me a call in the office! We have a site at Yaroomba not far from you.
Oh fantastic!! I have just started following Maroochy Waterwatch on Facebook, you guys do a great job. I live at Mt Coolum, but I've only been here on the Coast for two years so I am on a huge journey of discovery re the local wildlife! : )
Hi Shanna B!Thanks for your comments and links! Yes, I am a Sunny Coast local. This fellow was found whilst on a frog survey conducted for Maroochy Waterwatch. I am their Enviro Project Manager and we run frog surveys throughout the summer for the Council. The sight we spotted this guy is a real hot spot for the Giant Barred's, we were even lucky enough to see a juvenile who still had his tail stump. Great news to see this species doing so well.
PS Here are a few missions you might like to add this to.Amphibians of the World: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8001...Wilds of South-East Queensland: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/7967...Also, you might like to add a link to an interesting resource about your specimen, such as this one: http://wetlandinfo.derm.qld.gov.au/wetla...
Welcome to Project Noah Jacqui, and what a FANTASTIC SPOTTING!!! I am really envious, I'd love to see a barred frog. Are you certain on the subspecies ID? (I'm not an expert, I can't really tell the difference between the Mixophyes subspecies - I guess size is a fairly significant factor in making the ID. Have you thought about reporting it to DERM?) Are you a Sunny Coast local? Great to have you on board, we'll look forward to seeing more of your spottings. : )
