The Corroboree Frog

corroboree frog

The Corroboree Frog is a rare and also one of Australia’s most colourful amphibians. The reason for having these vibrant colours with stripes in still unheard of but unlike most other brightly coloured amphibians, its skin is not poisonous. This frog is 2.5- 3 cm long or 1-1 ¼ inches long and mostly terrestrial .It dwells in Australia’s moss-covered bogs set in the country’s Alps. This species of frog lays eggs and the females will not lay their eggs in water but in moss. These frogs breeding season is generally in the summer and a female can lay from 10-30 eggs but one nest was recorded to have a whopping 200! This amphibian is crucially endangered because of human activity, global warming and some diseases.
