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.
