Artist's Description

(Image taken at Campsie, NSW, Australia)

Also Known as : Emerald-spotted Tree Frog, Laughing Tree Frog, Maniacal Cackle Frog
Sometimes known as the Maniacal Cackle Frog due to its distinctive call.
Adults frequent wet and dry forest, woodlands, shrublands, and open areas; often long distances from the water where they spawn during breeding season. Eggs and tadpoles are found in still water in swamps, dams, streamside ponds, and lagoons.
Males call from near water either on the ground or in vegetation. The call is very long and drawn out, slowly pulsed and increasing in loudness – “cra-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahhk”.Adult length: 45-70mm.
The eggs are pigmented in jelly. The tadpoles are pale golden-yellow to iridescent green. Adults have bright yellow with black mottling on armpits, groin, and backs of thighs. They have a cross-shaped pupil and small (sometimes indistinct) emerald green flecks on the back.
