Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology: It is a terrestrial, grassland species, usually found near waterbodies. It breeds in temporary pools, digging its nest near the water. Males call from human altered habitats such as fallow plots in urban areas covered by short (< 1m tall) grass-like vegetation. Males call either from within underground chambers or exposed (Giaretta and Costa, 2007). The reproductive season coincides with the rainy season (September-February). Clutch size is unknown (A.A. Giaretta, pers. comm. 2008).
Systems: Terrestrial; Freshwater

Threats [top]
