Eastern Snapping Frog

Cyclorana novaehollandiae


This is a large burrowing frog that is native to eastern QLD and NSW in Australia. They can live for long periods underground where they shed their skin and use it as a cocoon to stay moist until the rains arrive.


Found this one on a road after rain south of Roma.
