Cave-dwelling frog

The Cave-dwelling frog is classified as Data Deficient (DD), inadequate information to make a direct, or indirect, assessment of its risk of extinction.

The Cave-dwelling Frog (Litoria cavernicola) is a species of frog in the Hylidae family. It is endemic to Australia. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry shrubland, subtropical or tropical dry lowland grassland, rivers, rocky areas, inland karsts, and caves. More

Interestingly, an endemic cave-dwelling frog was discovered only recently (in 1979) among the sandstone gorges of the Mitchell Plateau. The first wet season downpour in the Kimberley is enough to stir frogs into action. More

* The cave-dwelling frog lives in a cave, it is known to take refuge in gaps between large boulders. More
