LESUEUR'S FROG Litoria lesueuri (Dumeril and Bibron, 1841)
Attaining 7 cm in size more than one frog species is probably included here.
This frog is found along the coast and near ranges of Eastern Australia from Victoria to the bottom of Cape York.
Found in a wide range of habitats this frog has similar habits to the Broad Palmed Frog Litoria latopalmata. This species covers great distances within a relatively short time when foraging. It is commonly encountered moving on wet nights when crossing roads.
In captivity it feeds on cockroaches, small beetles, and has been known to take smaller frogs. The call is a soft purring trill repeated for a few seconds.
This species breeds in all but the coldest months of the year.
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.
