Litoria ewingi

A widely distributed species found across south-eastern Australia from the Murray river through southern Victoria and Tasmania, into the south coast of New South Wales.

They are agile hunters, capable of taking their insect prey on the wing.

Their distinctive "creeeeeee creee creee cree cree" call is familiar to many people, and is not uncommon in some Melbourne suburbs.

Eggs are usually laid attached to submerged vegetation in still water such as streamside ponds, lakes and dams. Length up to 4 cm.
