The eyes have it ... it?s only a frog

It was an exciting moment for Colin Harrison of Grafton.

He spotted this pallid-looking frog near the back step of his home in Fry Street, and was convinced he'd caught a rare albino amphibian on camera.

Not so, said the National Parks and Wildlife Service.

After studying Col Harrison's photo, an officer said the frog's eyes weren't white, so it wasn't an albino.

It turns out that green frogs get very pale when they go into hibernation, although the NPWS did concede that the colour change in this case was extreme.
