Tillellan – Frog List

This is the start of our Frog List . . . an on-going list like our Bird List.

Over the time I’ve uncovered a couple of frogs around the garden. As I’ve tried to identify them from pictures I’ve taken I’ve comet to realise that we may actually have several types of frogs in and around our garden. For example, what I thought was a Moaning Frog actually is a Sand Frog. Which makes sense, because I’ve found it deep in sand and I’ve heard its call – which is MUCH different to the call of the Moaning Frog!

All of the species found within our garden are endemic.

Sand Frog

This frog begins to breed around Autumn with the first decent rain fall. In 2018, as I’m starting this list we’ve not had decent rains until right at the end of May.


Motorbike Frog (Moore’s Frog, Western Green Tree Frog) More information on the Frogwatch page. This frog begins its breeding in Spring with the warmer weather.

About Petit Paradis

I am on a journey with my family to transition as closely as practicable to a state of self-reliance in suburbia. I practice permaculture principles in our house, garden and community. We are on the southern coast of Western Australia. To our north is the rest of the world. To the south, Antarctica.

    Moaning frog? Do they moan? That would be weird. The little frogs here make such a racket, but at least they do not moan.
