No, look forward to reading the answer. It ought to be named a Froghopper but I dont think it is.

I'd take a punt and say that it's some type of planthopper, given the rear wings and legs from what little I can see. Do you have a frontal shot? Nice shot.

Wonderful capture- looks like a cross between a koala bear and a toad to me :)

Thanks guys. I would love to know what it is. I do not have a frontal. These dudes crawl and hop super fast.

I got this along the river trail. I seem to find lots of interesting things along the rivers edge.
