Yes confirm ID. You can tell it was placed on the rock to photograph as the back is arched

Interesting behavioural insight Gaia. I gather that this species (and speculate that other Litoria spp.) arch their back as a defensive behaviour/response to being handled. Perhaps to make themselves look bigger and/or harder to swallow)?
