Uninvited Guests.............

I photographed these frogs inside the house at night, using flash,so the quality..errr....  After photographing the two specimens, the identification drill! They turned out to be Termite Nest Frog/Ramanella variegata. There are some interesting facts about these croackers on this wikipedia page.
