Biology

This frog is mainly diurnal and eats small insects which are attracted by fallen fruits. Males attract females by calling out very short notes that are composed of two even shorter clicks. Between 15 and 60 greenish-yellow eggs are laid (4) in cavities under rocks and in the trunks of dead trees (5). They hatch into tadpoles during heavy rainfall, which washes them into small pools of water (5). The tadpoles grow to a size of 28 mm and undergo metamorphosis after 45 – 65 days to take the adult form (4).
