This was the book you should buy ... It had a Green Python on the cover and is a definitive work on the subject.  But it is now available on CD-rom! Click here for further details. GREEN AND GOLDEN BELL FROG Litoria aurea (Lesson, 1829)
This frog attains up to 9 cm in length, although males are usually somewhat smaller. As its' name suggests, this species is green and gold in colour, with the gold consisting of variably shaped blotches.
Essentially a pond dwelling species, this voracious cannibalistic frog is most common around swamps and creeks with plenty of bulrushes, in which it shelters. When foraging for food at night, this species rarely strays far from its' preferred habitat.
During the summer breeding season this species may also be diurnal.
The call is a deep droning sound followed by about four short 'Crawk' sounds. Eggs are deposited amongst loose floating vegetation, and tadpoles take about 10-12 weeks to metamorphose.

The above was from the book Australian Reptiles and Frogs by Raymond Hoser and now available on a fantastic CD-Rom along with a vast amount of other information, papers and the like on reptiles, frogs and other wildlife.
