Frog or Toad?

"Frog and toad" is rhyming slang in these parts for "road" and while I'd like to think this was a representation of a marsh frog, I suspect it's actually a cane toad, one of if not the most invasive of all introduced species in Australia.   

Perhaps I should have searched a bit harder for a description. It's a lovely thing no matter.

It's a lovely frog whatever its real origin. It looks closer to a Barred River Frog https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_barred_frog than a Cane Toad but at the end, it's an artistic interpretation. Love your posts!
