Life History, Abundance, Activity, and Special Behaviors
Prefers coastal or mountain rainforest, often with sandy banks or leaf litter. Appears quite resilient to disturbance, perhaps due to its broad habitat utilisation. However it does not tolerate complete forest clearing. Breeds in late spring and eggs are deposited among leaf litter on the banks of streams and washed into the pools of streams or streamside pools during heavy rain. Has been found breeding in farm dams near forested areas.
