HABITAT

These frogs may live almost anywhere from hot and humid valleys and lowland forests to cooler, drier land high up in the mountains. Depending on the species, they may spend much of their time hiding under rocks or other places on land, hopping through grass or forests, climbing in trees, or swimming under water. Some even live in burrows inside ant hills. Mating in the typical leptodactylid frog happens in the water. This may be a lake, small pond, a pool that is only filled with water during part of the year, or some other body of water.
