Facts On New Zealand Native Frogs

  • They have no external eardrum.
  • They have round (not slit) eyes.
  • They don't croak regularly like most frogs.
  • They don't have a tadpole stage. The baby develops inside an egg, and then hatches as an almost fully-formed frog.
  • The young of most species are cared for by their parents - for example, the male Archey's frog may carry his young offspring around on his back.
