fat frogs - a good sign?

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).

fat frogs - a good sign?

Postby cferart » Thu Mar 06, 2008 8:50 pm

Hi all,

Tonight I saw a very large spotted marshie... I'm assuming that it is ok for frogs to be fat? and that its a good sign that there's lots of insects about?

If I get a picture I will post as it looked really rotund for a marshie .... almost as big as a Banjo frog.

cheers
Catherine

Yes, it is good. Especially in Autumn since the insect numbers will be going down over winter. They should hopefully be at their fattest now. Normally at the end of winter, you see lots of very thin frogs.
