The Common Eastern Froglet shows a great deal of variation in colour, markings and size.
It can be predominantly grey or brown or black, with dark bands, irregular patches or vertical stripes of any of these colours. Its skin also varies in texture from smooth to warty and may even have raised folds like ridges.
The Common Eastern Froglet is found in many sufficiently wet habitats from the mountains to the coast, usually in shallow water, such as suburban fish ponds.
The Common Eastern Froglet is found in eastern Australia
The Common Eastern Froglet's call is a 'crick-crick-crick' that sounds like a ratchet.
