Habitat and Ecology

Habitat and Ecology
It occurs in grassland near temporary and permanent lentic waterbodies where it breeds. Males call from the edge or from within the water, and the eggs are deposited in spherical foam nests that float on top of the water. It is able to adapt to anthropogenic disturbance.

Fecundity appears to be variable: a population in Argentina has been reported to produce between ca 1000 and 1600 eggs per female, whereas a population in Uruguay has been reported to produce ca 200-400 eggs (Camargo et al., 2008).
