MOCQUARD'S RAIN FROG (Scaphiophryne calcarata): SPECIES ACCOUNT

All of the species in this family live in Madagascar, a large island nation in the Indian Ocean off southern Africa.


Scientists know very little about the diet of Madagascaran toadlets, but they believe the frogs are mainly insect-eaters. Although toadlets, like the red rain frog, will eat crickets in captivity, this does not necessarily mean that they normally eat crickets in the wild. The tadpoles are filter-feeders, which means that they strain out tiny bits of food from the water.


The more colorful Madagascaran toadlets are common in the pet trade.
