Motorbike frog – Born To Be Wild

Motorbike frog Litoria moorei tree frog

While cleaning out part of the back garden I stumbled upon this little motorbike frog (Litoria moorei) sunbathing on a sheet of galvanised steel. These little ground dwelling ย tree frogs are named after the male frog’s mating call, resembling a motorbike changing up gears. Especially after the last of the winter rains and into the early breeding season it sounds like a scene from Easy Rider. Click on the mp3 below, close your eyes and imagine cruising on you own Harley!


  1. That’s one really interesting name, Maurice ๐Ÿ™‚

    Perfect shot and the mp3 really gives us a feel of the ambiance…

    Thank you for sharing and have a good day ahead ๐Ÿ™‚
