Reminds me of Winnie the Pooh being stuck in a very tight place.

Great macro shots and cute story telling!

Don't know how I missed this one !

Lovely story telling John and some excellent frog shots. Lovely creatures.

I would have thought it a toad from the warts on it's back but I thought it an interesting question so this is what I found on Answers :

Kingdom: Animalia
Subkingdom: Metazoa
Phylum: Chordata
Subphylum: Vertebrata
Class: Amphibia
Order: Anura
After this you get to family, and that is where frogs and toads split. True toads are all members of the family Bufonidae. There are also several frog species that are called toads in the common name, but if you look up the scientific classification, this reveals that they are indeed frogs. They are just called toads because of their resemblance to toads.
Frogs have finer bodies with narrower waists while toads' bodies are broader.
When on a flat surface, frogs lie flat, but toads tend to sit upright.
Frogs have feet which are specially structured to act as suction caps to enable them to climb trees and other surfaces. Toads are entirely ground-dwelling.
Frogs have an amazing variety of colours - green, yellow, orange, red, black and even blue. Toads are duller in appearance.
Frogs can jump and leap very far because they have strong back legs, but toads cannot leap very far or jump very high.
Some frogs have poison glands, but all toads have poison glands.
Frogs have slimy, slippery and delicate skin, but toads have drier skin with warts.
Frogs' eggs are laid in bunches, whilst toads' eggs are laid in long strings.
Generally, frogs live near water (although there are some desert species which hibernate until rains come). Toads tend to live away from water.
Some frog species are diurnal and some are nocturnal: toads are almost exclusively nocturnal.
Frogs have teeth for gripping their food (not chewing). Toads do not have teeth.
There are no native toad species in Australia, but there are many native frog species.
