Native frogs sometimes mistaken for cane toads
Western Australia has 78 species of native frogs. The photographs below, arranged by geographical region, will assist in identifying native frogs that are sometimes mistaken for cane toads. Many of these native frogs burrow and only emerge after rain. This sometimes gives the impression that they have suddenly ‘arrived’ in the area. Frogs can also vary greatly in colour and patterning, so these photographs should be used as a guide only.
