Spot the Frog

I found this picture on the DOC website. Kara Goddard from Hamilton Zoo took this picture on a field trip to the Bay of Plenty. How many frogs can you see in this picture?

There are three Hochstetters frogs in this picture, two green ones and a tiny brown one only 12 mm long. They are amazingly camouflaged and rely on sitting still so that their predators (or humans) cannot see them.

Maud Island Frog - Native NZ Frog

The Maud Island frog is one of only four native frog species in New Zealand and they’re not what you’d expect from frogs. They have no webbing between their toes, don’t croak, and there are no tadpoles. Click on the picture to be taken to a video about this special frog.

Frogs are Environmental Indicators
