Friend or Foe?

I have no idea what type of frog this little guy is, and therefore, I’ve no idea if he is friend or foe.

Do you know this little frog?

Perhaps he’s a Bleating Tree Frog.  He almost fits the description I found on Wikipedia.  “The dorsal surface of this frog is a dark or pale, rich brown, with broad irregular, lighter bands on each side of the frog starting from the back of the eye. A dark stripe runs from the snout, through the eye and onto the tympanum.”  (That’s the frog’s ear, positioned behind, and just below, their eyes.)

And yet, perhaps he isn’t.  He doesn’t have a white band under his eyes.

What I do know is that he’s awfully cute and has taken up residence in the water well of one of my pots.  Don’t be fooled by the photo – it’s a small pot, and even though he’s just a pee little frog, he sings loud and proud whenever it rains (at least I’m assuming it’s him I hear), and he was very pleased to receive a ‘sprinkling’ when I watered the plants yesterday.
