Common Mist Frog: Litoria rheocola

  • A smallish frog usually coloured brownish or tan above and whitish below, and often slightly spotty.

  • They have a fairly blunt snout, large dull orange eyes, webbed toes and large toe pads.

  • On warm, wet nights their soft but quite persistent 'wreeeek' calls can be heard from in and around rainforest freshwater streams in the Daintree lowlands.

  • Here, they are usually found on the boulders in and around the creek, and occasionally on the lower surrounding vegetation.

  •  This is one of the 'disappearing frogs', the rainforest frogs affected by the population reductions since the 1980's.
