Looks like a bloated version of the one I lobbed over the hill. You wouldn't believe it but about half an hour later it had resurfaced near the pool and resumed its wonderful song in alll its glory. And do you think I could find it again...

According to the Amphibian Research Centre this may be a Dainty Green Tree Frog (Litotria gracilenta), commonly known as a Banana frog,- and a very sick one at that, apparently.
Is it still alive, or did it croak ? (pardon the pun).

I had a bit of a look at the Dainty Green Tree Frog images, and they look quite different? that one has a very blunted face compared with normal tree frogs. The only real reason i noticed it was it started screeching (think of the sound a tree frog makes when it is being eaten by a bird or a snake and you will know what i mean!) when i walked near it. I thought it may have been puffed up because of it's night of "bushiness" on the dam grin but it stayed like that the whole time.

I let it go into the palms and it quickly went on it's way.

I thought that too, with it's blunt face it looked nothing like the Dainty frog, but this morning I had another email back from the Wet Tropics Management Authority saying it was a Dainty Green Tree Frog too.
Now I don't know what to think. Neither mobs knew what ailment it had,- just that it was real crook. Anyway, if it hopped away it may recover all by itself.

I the sent the photos to my resident experts, the taxonomist said it is definitely the Dainty Green Tree Frog, the amphibian disease person said
"Sorry I dont know, looks terrible.

Wonder if its air or fluid? Fluid build up can be due to lots of things like kidney damage. or parasites blocking lymph drainage."

It Looked like it would have been air filled, as the sac in the throat region was deflated.

I was talking to a few 'older' locals who have been in the region for 50 years or so. They reckon we are in for a huge wet simply based on us having quite a cool November - they see that as a sign of a big wet! Bring it on!

Cooler than average temps on the east coast at this time of year are more likely in LaNina weather patterns DU. Onshore due to enhanced trades and more associated moisture feed though it does not guarantee a big wet, just increases the odds.

I'm not sure what all this cool November talk is based on.
So far this November, the daily max temps are only -0.1° C down on the 75 year average.
The nightly mins have actually been +0.1° C above the 75 year average.
So negligible, it's hardly of any concern.

Have a look outside cairns hickory. Most locations are 0.7c to 2c below average for November. Only a couple of the locations I looked at were average or just below. I am sure there are a couple that are above but majority of the coast is below average

In Townsville at the moment and it has pretty mucn all browned off again. Poor buggers still missing out on the rain.
