These frogs come together to breed in puddles and flooded areas after heavy rain. The males float in the shallow waters and call out to the females. The sound of males calling together sounds like a herd of cows mooing.
Egg clutches are laid in these shallow waters and will hatch after only 1 day. The tadpoles then take a further 5 – 7 weeks to develop into the adult form.
Veined tree frogs are sometimes called ‘peppered tree frogs’. This is due to their ability to secrete a sticky substance, which can cause reactions in humans ranging from sneezing to swelling and skin irritation.
