Frogs!!! Our new collection pays homage to Australia’s diverse tail-less amphibians. Over half of Australia’s 400 frogs species are only found here - how cool is that? They are just as unique as everything else in Australia’s ecosystem and play an important part in our wetlands. Sadly, though, many find themselves in increasingly inhospitable habitats with four frog species becoming extinct and twenty seven under threat.

Frogs Featured:
Red-eyed Green Tree Frog Living only amongst the rainforests along the coast of Eastern Australia, this native frog is brightly coloured with red eyes. We recommend less screen time for our tiny friend.

Corroboree Frog Critically endangered: There are fewer than 200 of these native frogs left, which makes it one of Australia’s most endangered species overall. It also happens to be one of Australia’s most interesting. Preferring the snow over catching waves, they exist only in the Snowy Mountains and hibernate each Winter. Not only are they able to produce their own poison, they are the only frog species in the world that can produce it themselves instead of from a diet. Heat, ski resorts, the ozone layer, drought and the introduced chytrid fungus are making it hard for these frogs to hang on. But without them, the world loses a little bit of its magic. And once they’re gone, they’re gone.

Green Tree Frog This common frog, found all over East and North Australia has a long lifespan and truly embodies the ‘no worries mate’ lifestyle of an Australian native. Docile and unafraid of humans, they are also nocturnal. And if you can’t see them, you might hear them - they scream when threatened and squeak when touched!

Green and Golden Bell Frog This large native NSW frog was once of the most populous. Due to habitat loss, pathogens and pollution, they are now listed as vulnerable. But not many frogs can say they influenced the Olympics, though — during the 2000 Sydney Olympics, they were found at the proposed site for the tennis courts, which were then built elsewhere to preserve their habitat. How’s that for a gold medal in conservation?

Centralian Tree Frog A large, common frog found only in central Australia. Since it’s so hot there, it’s a real night owl, hiding under rocks during the day and only coming out at night to find food. Midnight snack anyone?
