Australian Ground Frogs: Limnodynastidae


Australian ground frogs eat various types of invertebrates (in-VER-teh-brehts), which are animals without backbones, by either grasping them with a flick of the tongue or by biting at them. Australian ground frogs wait to hunt until night, and some do their hunting only after heavy rains soak the ground. In many species, such as the Baw Baw frog, the tadpoles do not need to search for food. Instead, they live on a sack of nutritious yolk that is left over from the egg and is still a part of their bodies.
