Spotted Marsh Frog

Limnodynastes tasmaniensis


Up to 4.5cm in size, its colour varies from light brown to a rich olive-green with a series of large, darker splotches and often a narrow pale stripe running down its back. Its call is a very rapid “uk-uk-uk-uk” repeated at intervals.


An adaptable species found throughout the eastern regions of Australia, usually sheltering near water. It is often the first frog to take advantage of new dams, ditches and water-covered areas.
