Found along the coast and near ranges of NSW and adjoining areas, this large frog reaches 8 cm in length. Like all 'Barred Frogs' it has a distinctive appearance (See picture).
The Barred frog is restricted to rainforests and similar habitats within its' range. This ground dwelling frog eats all arthropods and vertebrates that will fit into its' mouth, including other frogs and small snakes.
The female is the larger sex and lays her eggs on vegetation adjacent to fast flowing rainforest creeks. These are washed into the creeks by rain where they hatch and the tadpoles subsequently develop into frogs.
The call is a short grating 'trill' of several pulses.

The above was from the book Australian Reptiles and Frogs by Raymond Hoser and now available on a fantastic CD-Rom along with a vast amount of other information, papers and the like on reptiles, frogs and other wildlife.
