STRIPED BURROWING FROG Litoria abloguttata (Gunther, 1867)
This frogs' dorsal colour ranges from brown to green, with or without stripe/s or blotches. Attaining 6 cm the Striped Burrowing Frog is found throughout most parts of Queensland, northern inland NSW, and adjacent to the Gulf Of Carpentaria.
This frog is commonly found along floodplains, and around semi-permanent dams and waterholes. It has a relatively strong tolerance for brackish environments. Feeding on small arthropods, this species is active during the day in colder weather. This frog appears to be closely related to the Water Holding Frogs, genus Cyclorana although more research work is needed here. The call is a loud and rapid quacking sound.
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.
