    1. we would often see lots of different little frogs on our nightly adventure of cane toading a bit of proactive environmental culling when out bushcamping ....cane toads are a real nuisance to our native animals Posted 6 years ago

The northern dwarf tree frog, is a small species of tree frog native to northern Australia, from the Kimberly region of Western Australia to Bowen, Queensland, and Aru Islands of Indonesia. The population occurring in Indonesia may not be ''L. bicolor'', and research on call structure or genetics is needed to confirm its taxonomic status.
