Frog: Common River

Unread post by BushSnake »

Their call is actually quite interesting, as they often do both a call for the females (i.e. attracting potential mates) and a call to warn off rival males in quick succession.
Most frogs would only do one at a time but these guys mix them... which means that they never keep quiet when you want to sleep! :D
