Habitat and Ecology

Habitat and Ecology
Primarily in seasonally dry forest and woodland habitats. Also occurs in small dams and marshy areas. Congregates around creeks and flooded depressions where there is ground cover during the wet season. In the dry season it emerges to forage in moist microhabitats (creekbeds and soaks). Breeding takes place in summer. Males call from the banks of temporary pools. Spawn consists of around 450 eggs and is deposited in pools in creeks and streamside pools. It has also been observed in artificial waterbodies (dams and cattle water tanks). In New Guinea this species inhabits open woody savannah. It breeds in swamps and temporary pools.
