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).

Walking along the Warringne Board Walk on Westernport Bay , i was surprised to hear a multitude of frog calls , coming from at best , brackish , more likley the salt water . All along this tidal marsh area frog calls , the only one i could positively identify was the pollybonk . I was amazed that frogs could happily live in this salty situation ! Is this common ? Many Thanks Liam
It's a bit of a surprise, but I have seen two species happily breeding in saltmarsh- though only after heavy rains. Both the Pobblebonk and Common Froglet can be seen in such areas. I am in Asia at the moment and there is a frog that breeds in the mangroves- the Crab Eating Frog Fejevarya cancrivora. Has no dramas with a bit of salt! Big frog too, eaten by locals.
