The arid landscape of Central Australia has an array of habitats, from the
sandy desert regions, salt pans, claypans, gorges, chasms and gaps, with dry
riverbeds weaving through the landscape linking up permanent water holes, that
are often the life blood for a number of wildlife. It is in this unique landscape
of Central Australia that
a variety of frog species are found.
Except where there is permanent water,
many desert frog species only emerge after some significant rainfall. As water
in the arid landscape does not usually last long, the frogs in the region mate,
spawn, whilst the tadpoles develop into frogs, all within the space of about 12
to 14 days.
Following are some images of the frogs that can be found in Central Australia.
