Daintree Rainforest frogs

Daintree Rainforest Frogs of Cooper Creek Wilderness include the world’s ancestral (Hylid) tree frog stock, Microhylids, Myobatrachids and Rana stock.

Magnificently concealed for the greater part of the year, Daintree Rainforest frogs emerge in their thousands on the nights that bring mating opportunities that have been delayed by drought.  On such nights, in the teeming tropical deluge, the greater abundance of Daintree Rainforest frogs can be best appreciated.  The list (below) contains the inhabitant species of Cooper Creek Wilderness:
