Australian ground frogs are found in Australia and much of New Guinea.


Because many of these species burrow or otherwise stay out of sight during the day, people rarely see them. For some people who live in the deserts of Australia, however, a few of the burrowing species can be a good source of water. They dig up the frogs, whose bodies are plump with stored water, and suck the liquid from the frogs. Besides this unusual use, scientists are also now studying the slime of some species perhaps to make medicines.

All the varieties that you have mentioned are of rare kind and I hope that certain provisions must be adopted in helping all these animals safe from the danger of extinction. I will continue looking over your blog for more such updates.
