Presenting.... the tree frog hunter

Tomorrow we're off to Australia Zoo, home of Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter. In anticipation may I present Isaiah, our own wildlife expert.

This tree frog was spotted on the wall of our house. Yes, it really is that big. Isaiah caught it gently in the pool net, then we watched it for a while before letting it hop away in peace. A truly beautiful frog, it is so much prettier than those ugly, ugly cane toads.

Wait till you see up to 20 baby green ones on the glass pool fence late at night. Beautiful. Happens occasionally. The ones you may find in the pool, an ugly browny colour that look like toads, they're not toads. They are a native frog (have a bit of a red stripe on them). We get them out of the pool with the net and release them through the pool fence whereby they hop merrily back down to the water down in the gully.
