Sudell’s frog is a species of Australian ground frog (Myobatrachidae) which is found on and west of the Great Dividing Range of New South Wales to western Victoria and southern Queensland as well as far eastern South Australia.

Holy Cross Frog a.k.a Crucifix Toad (Notaden bennetti) by Stephen Zozaya: “My first holy cross toad! I was absolutely thrilled to see this frog as it was the highest on my list of frogs to see. Photographed near Quilpie, Queensland, Australia.”
“I have been waiting to see one of the 4 spadefoot toads (Notaden sp.) for ages now. I was thrilled when I stopped to check a frog on the road and it turned out to be a Notaden nichollsi. I was then fortunate enough to see about 300,000 more in the next 2 nights as I turned left and right to dodge them all while looking for geckos. I guessed I timed that right.”
Photographed near Windorah, Queensland, Australia.
Actually a froglet, the Quacking frog is endemic to south-west Western Australia. They are polymorphic, displaying a great variation in colour. This was noticable even amongst the froglets photographed near and around this specimen.
