Striped Burrowing Frog

Cyclorana alboguttata


The Striped Burrowing Frog is rough skinned with a striped and spotted pattern There is often a yellowish stripe down the back. Size 6cm - 8cm


Tropical Grassland


It is found in temporarily inundated grasslands and open forest in semi-arid and drier/seasonally wet coastal areas. They are generally associated with clay soils. Activity has a positive correlation with rainfall and the availability of freestanding water. In drier times they spend most of their time buried underground close to temporary ponds (in aestivation). An opportunistic breeder, it lays its eggs in temporary pools when there is sufficient rainfall. Tadpoles develop quickly to avoid desiccation. Roadside reserves provide significant habitat in areas heavily impacted by agro-industry farming.
