We had our first rain for six months yesterday. Our 'wild frogs' celebrated loudly all night.
I checked outside in the middle of the night and found all our usual frogs including ten green tree frogs.
I found it very interesting that eight of the GTFs were male with only two females. The boys were all puffed up and calling, the two girls just sitting.
I keep wondering if the temperature of the water in the ponds has an impact on the sex of tadpoles and frogs. Last summer was cooler than usual with many cloudy and rainy days.
Are there any studies that look at the relationship between pond temperature and sex of frogs?
Do you have a question about anatomy, life cycle, taxonomy, or anything else that isn't covered by the other frogs.org.au projects? Ask them here (or provide an answer to other people's questions).
