Life History, Abundance, Activity, and Special Behaviors
The males call from branches or lianas, sometimes a leaf, normally not higher than 3 metres above the ground and apparently far from water. The voice is a rather tonal, brief "tok", repeated once or twice, sometimes three times in succession. A longer call is emitted more rarely. It is a long succession of quiet figures, followed by a normal clack.
Leptopelis brevirostris is apparently exclusively a snail-eater.
