General Species Information:
Found in the Murray Mallee SA, Riverland and possibly elsewhere
We found a number of these on an expedition North of here, with a team of people helping with id's.
They have quite a bit of yellow around the mouth.
The main specimen here lost it's tail at some point, with the 2nd one showing an original tail.
5 fingers & 5 toes
