Spotted Marsh Frogs Not Calling Yet - SA

Postby bronny » Sun Nov 23, 2014 9:05 am

Hi Guys,

We have a healthy community of spotted marshies in our backyard pond but I haven't heard them call this season yet apart from quite a few weeks ago. Didn't notice any spawn afterwards either. Very unusual - anyone else in SA heard spotted marsh frogs calling yet? Wondering if it's because the weather has been all over the place....they are usually very vocal by now.

Thanks for any help

An update on this - our neighbour's frogs have been calling normally and still nothing from ours - any ideas? I have noticed that one of our cats has been weeing near the pond recently but we've always had cats and they've never affected the frogs. Could this be affecting them?

Thanks for any help.
