Spotted Burrowing Frog Neobatrachus sudelli

Photo: Wendy Dimond

Most people wouldn’t think that frogs would be found in grasslands. However, this Spotted Burrowing Frog Neobatrachus sudelli was found by Wendy Dimond, a researcher at the Institute for Applied Ecology (University of Canberra), during survey for the endangered Grassland Earless Dragon in Canberra. These frogs are seldom seen or heard, but significant amounts of rain, such as those experienced in recent times in Canberra, tend to bring them out of the woodwork, or should that be “earthwork” (sorry, couldn’t resist that one). I sometimes hear people comment: “I only have a point-and-shoot camera”. I think this photo demostrates nicely how spectactular images may be captured on point and shoot cameras.
