Naturalised species

Currently, the only non-native amphibian naturalised in Western Australia is "Limnodynastes tasmaniensis" (Spotted Grass Frog), which was introduced to Kununurra in the 1970s, apparently during the relocation of several hundred transportable homes from Adelaide.cite journal | author = Martin, A. A. and Tyler, M. J. | year = 1978 | title = The introduction into Western Australia of the frog "Limnodynastes tasmaniensis" Gunther | journal = Australian Zoologist | volume = 19 | issue = 3 | pages = 321-325] However, "Bufo marinus" (Cane Toad) occurs in the Northern Territory close to Western Australia's border, and is expected to spread into Western Australia within the next five years.cite web | url = | title = Advice to Western Australians on the humane killing of cane toads ("Bufo marinus") | accessdate = 2008-04-22 | publisher = Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia]
