THE PLAINS FROGLET
Small frog, ranging in colour from light cream to dark brown. Covered in raised warts and ridges. No webbing between toes.
Inhabits forest, heathlands, grassland and cleared pastures. They shelter under logs and leaf litter, near the waters edge, where they can be camouflaged.
Mostly insects as well as biofilms and algae
This frog can breed at anytime of the year, but peak breeding season is late winter through spring.
Eggs are laid either singularly or in clumps, and are attached to substrate in the water. Eggs will hatch 3-4 days after laying, with the tadpoles maturing after about 12 weeks.
Birds and snakes are the frogs major predators
Life expectancy can vary between 5 to 15 years
