Common Eastern Froglet Crinia signifera

Common Eastern Froglet, Crinia signifera, by Geoff Heard.

Also known as: Clicking Froglet, Common Froglet, Eastern Brown Froglet

Distribution: Throughout Victoria, but less common in the north-west of the state.

Conservation: Not considered threatened.

Habitat: Lots of places where there is water – backyard ponds, shallow dams, lakes and wetlands.

Call: “Crick, crick, crick”. Not unlike a cricket chirping.

And another thing: Individual Common Eastern Froglets often vary greatly in colour, skin texture and pattern and look like many other species. Their call is the best way to identify them.
