Long-thumbed Frog & Great Brown Broodfrog to add to the List 22/05/11

After the excitement of finding the Salmon-Striped Frog, Brendon set off searching for another to photograph for evidence.  While he didn't find another Salmon-Striped Frog, he came across two "unknowns".  Once again we went to Rod for positive identification after pouring over many frog and wildlife books.  Rod also checked with two other people for positive ID's of these frogs and it was much appreciated.  The photos below also show ones of the Broad-Palmed Rocket-Frog which we see here regularly, but these two pictures show a varied colour from its usual self, thus causing  bit of confusion with its id.  With thanks again to Rod for the much needed advice.
