That proves it,ev! Lawn-mowers should be banned and everybody should start using wallabies. Please give my sympathy to the tree-frog,poor thing.

C'mon kaz it does say 'hospital drama'..

Anyway I thought I was cool that
a. someone cared enough to take it to an animal hospital and
b. they were able to fix him up..

But if you insist, here's a warning:

"This photo shows a green tree frog with a large amount of skin removed from its head and back by a rogue lawnmower. You have been warned."

And they were able to treat him? That's amazing! I assumed the frog got chopped to bits by the lawnmower.

Are tree-frogs protected? They're obviously not pests. Good that it was able to be healed!

I'm a big fan of frogs, plenty in our garden,just yer average bog-standard frog. Don't have a lawn so I suppose they're safe from that)

Here's a nice 2 min documentary about Australian Green Tree Frogs:

John Cleese's mini-documentary (under 5 minutes) on behalf of the critically endangered Agile Frog. I wonder if John did this because both he and the frog have ridiculously long legs?
