Frogs are cold-blooded amphibians – animals that live both on land and in water, and Australia is home to more than 200 species of  these amazing creatures, some of which can be found in home gardens that offer a suitable habitat.

The photos of Australian frogs that are featured in this gallery include the Giant Green Tree Frog, Litoria caerulea, the Dainty Green Tree Frog, Litoria gracilenta, and the Eastern Dwarf Tree Frog, Litoria fallax, some of which can be seen here on  colourful garden flowers that are part of their urban / backyard habitat.

Other images show the Striped Marsh Frog, Limnodynastes peronii, and the Broad Palmed Frog, Litoria latopalmata, which is also known as the Broad Palmed Rocket Frog, Gravel Frog, and Gunther’s Frog.

Here you’ll also discover the curious and aptly named Ornate Burrowing Frog Platyplectrum ornatum syn. Opistodon ornatum that spends much of its life underground, and there are also photos of the despised Cane Toad, Bufo marinus, a species that was introduced to Australia to control insect pests in crops of sugar cane but that has itself become an invasive pest.
