Litoria burrowsae

Litoria burrowsae (Tasmanian Tree Frog)

Status: least concern.

If you want to see how wildly inacurate wikipedia can be, look at the article for burrowsae. At one point it talked about how they at risk because of exported to Asia for consumption. At the moment it says theu eat mainly grass! FYI: niether of these are correct.

Burrowsae have a limited range in the south west of Tasmania. I was lucky enough to see them on a trip to Melaluca. Big bold tree frogs seem out of place in the cold bleakness of their home, but they thrive in the button grass and melaluca swamps. Their calls dominate the lonely wilderness.
