Spot the Frog

I found this picture on the DOC website. Kara Goddard from Hamilton Zoo took this picture on a field trip to the Bay of Plenty. How many frogs can you see in this picture?

There are three Hochstetters frogs in this picture, two green ones and a tiny brown one only 12 mm long. They are amazingly camouflaged and rely on sitting still so that their predators (or humans) cannot see them.
