Giant Banjo Frog
Breeding season: spring, summer and autumn, after heavy rains. Males call most of the year, except summer, from concealed floating vegetation within waterbodies. Eggs are pigmented and contained within a large foam mass, which is concealed among aquatic vegetation or flooded burrow. It spends most of its life underground and emerges only after rain when its time to feed and spawn. It is powerful burrower and jumper.
A cream, yellow or orange raised stripe extends from below the eye to arm.
