Interesting Facts about the Mist Frog
This inch and a half-long species of frog is indigenous to the area of Queensland, Australia. While most frogs are quite bulbous in shape, these frogs are quite a bit more slender, with long limbs and webbed hands and feet. Their coloring is brownish, with a darker streak that runs between their eyes and down their backs, fading in color as it gets further toward its backside. Their eyes are very large, taking up as much as half of each side of the frog’s face, and their noses are very angular. They like to live near fast-flowing streams, with males preferring to reside between rocks by the river beds.
Did you know?
- This species will mate throughout the entire year, with the most common mating months being between November and April.
- Males will make a long “wreek”-like call to attract females, usually from their places between rocks or amidst hanging vegetation.
- They are a species of tree frog.
- Up to sixty-three eggs can be laid at one time, usually beneath rocks to help prevent the eggs from being washed away by the force of their favorite streams.
- Tadpoles of this species have specialized mouths that help them to keep from getting washed too far down stream.
In areas 1,500 feet above sea level, the population of the mist frog has decreased greatly. They are classed as an endangered species, with the first instance of population disappearance happening in the year 1989. They are protected by the government to help try and protect what population still remains.
