Frogs recorded in the Sanctuary
Two families of frogs occur in Victoria; Hylidae or Tree Frogs and Myobatrachinae (formerly Leptobractylidae) or Southern Frogs.
The La Trobe Wildlife Sanctuary is home to 9 species of frogs. The extensive wetland system at La Trobe is an ideal area for frogs to breed. Well vegetated wetlands with large amounts of ground cover in the form of rocks and logs, ensure sufficient cover. Did you know that apart from the breeding season, most species of frogs spend the most of their time away from the water?
