The luckiest two Banjo Frogs in Australia. Rescued from inside sealed bags
These two banjo or Pobblebonk frogs are sooo lucky to be alive
Banjo frogs live in soil.They burrow deeply in to soft soil and wait for heavy rains before coming out and calling with their banjo sounding calls.

We have them in a pond outside our bedroom at home and they drive us mad on hot nights.
But then back to the storey.
We had a call from a customer that had purchased bags of our prepaid mix from pallets out the front of the nursery.
After storing it for a few weeks when he opened it, out jumped a banjo frog!
The bags are hand filled with shovels from large pits, sealed airtight and placed out the front of the nursery.
They do get sun on the bags for a few hours a day.
Some how these TWO frogs where shovelled up amongst the mix, bagged up, one was posted out!
The other turned up when a staffer unbagged one to pot up a fallen orchid.
Why they crossed a dusty gravel car park, crossed a large concrete slab and buried themselves in dry course rough mix is a mystery to me.
These noisy little buggers are TOUGH!!!
