Solomon Island Leaf Frog Fact Sheet

  • Latin Name

    Ceratobatrachus guentheri
  • Class

    Amphibians
  • Order

    Anura
  • Range

    The Solomon Island leaf frog resides on its titular collection of land masses near Australia. They are also found in Papua New Guinea.

  • Habitat

    This frog resides in tropical lowland forests and in regions of rural or urban areas that are conducive to its lifestyle.

  • Niche

    Nocturnal animals, Solomon Island leaf frogs hunt insects under moonlight.

  • Life History

    Unlike most frogs that experience a tadpole stage, Solomon Island leaf frogs hatch from eggs as fully developed (if small) frogs. Eggs are laid in shallow nests dug into the ground.

  • Special Adaptations

    A loud call-almost like a dog's bark-helps Solomon Island leaf frogs mark territory and find mates.
