Museum in a Box - Frogs

James King © Australian Museum

Frogs live on all the large landmasses of the world, except Antarctica and Greenland. They are most common in the warm, wet tropics, but they also live in hot deserts, cold alpine areas and variable coastal areas. Worldwide there is a decline in frog numbers and species. This box features some Australian frogs that are very well adapted to life in dry deserts, and others that are adapted for life in wet or forested habitats.
