Your Ornate Frog (Cophixalus ornatus) is a Cane Toad. Its sounds a
spectacular mis-id in terms of scale.  Adult weight for Cophixalus is
about 1 gram and Cane Toads get to 1kg, so in (adult) scale its about
the same as identifying an eagle as a fairy-wren.  But its
not hard to mis-id tiny toads when you first meet them.
