Eastern Sedgefrog

Eastern Sedgefrog

Litoria fallax

Eastern Sedgefrog’s are found in wetlands and suburban gardens.

Sedgefrogs vary in colour between green, pale brown, and with a white jaw stripe and a dark band between the nostril and eye. They are sometimes speckled. They also possess discs on the top of their fingers and toes for grip.

The diet of the Eastern Sedgefrog is primarily made up of mosquitoes and other flying insects.

Male Sedgefrogs call to females with a ‘creek’ followed by two ‘pips’. Eggs are laid in clusters near reed stems just under the surface of the water.
