Lots of *very* horny Cane #Toads (Rhinella marina) trying to mate with a large Olive #Python (Liasis olivaceus), with Giant Burrowing Frogs (Cyclorana
australis) & Red Tree #Frogs (Litoria rubella) calling in the background!" she said.
1997: Sensory modulation and behavioral choice during feeding in the Australian frog, Cyclorana
Skeletal muscle atrophy occurs slowly and selectively during prolonged aestivation in Cyclorana
alboguttata (Gunther 1867).
But, when it comes to switching to energy-saving mode, the champion by far among vertebrates is the burrowing frog (Cyclorana
alboguttata), which can survive for several years buried in the mud in the absence of any food or water.
In this way, the Australian water-holding frog (Cyclorana
platycephala) can survive up to seven years without rain.
An Australian water-holding frog (a Cyclorana
species) is able to absorb enough water to last for months or even years of drought.
