Frogs

Daintree Rainforest frogs

Daintree Rainforest Frogs include the world’s ancestral Hylid stock, Microhylids, Myobatrachids and Rana clades.

Magnificently concealed for the greater part of the year, Daintree Rainforest amphibeans emerge in their thousands on nights that bring mating opportunities that have been delayed by prolonged drought.  On such nights, in the teeming tropical deluge, the greater abundance of Daintree Rainforest frogs can be best appreciated.  

Because search engine optimisation penalised over-use of key-words in the body of a page, I have substituted FRG.  The phylogeny (below) contains the inhabitant species of Daintree Rainforest:
