When Fairfax Media publication, the Guardian News, Nambucca Heads did a shout-out on its Facebook page asking where the biggest green frogs might be found locally, they had no idea what they had started.
It seemed almost everyone had photos of frogs, large and supersized at the ready – and share them readers did on their post.
Now it’s the Great Lakes turn to share their photographs of frogs, big and small, green or brown.
“We even had one frog – a petite little critter – snapped at Katherine in the Northern Territory,” the Guardian wrote.
As Kermit would say: “Always be yourself. Never take yourself too seriously.”
Our shoutout for your frog snaps was prompted by the release of a new app which can identify frogs based on the sound they make.
The free FrogID app, developed in partnership with IBM, identifies frog species by the sounds they make – from croaks and chirps, to whistles and barks. Up to one million Australians are expected to download the app and head to parks, creeks, dams or wetlands to listen for frog calls.
