Everything you ever wanted to know about our special native frogs, and other visitors who have ‘hopped’ over the ditch! Our four native frog species are ancient. They have some unusual things that make them different to other frogs around the world. Many of our frogs do not have a tadpole stage. Some daddy frogs carry froglets on their backs. Some of our frogs do not croak. Most breathe through their skin as well as their nose. Some are not much bigger than a $2 coin. They are all rare and some are endangered. You will also find about the yucky poisonous cane toad from Australia.
