Eastern Banjo Frogs. Also referred to as Pobblebonks.
The eastern banjo frog (Limnodynastes dumerili) is a large and squat frog up to 65mm long. It is a capable burrower, digging with its hind legs and descending backwards into its burrow. This frog is found throughout most of eastern Tasmania and to the north of Macquarie Harbour on the west coast. A different subspecies occurs on King Island.
It occurs in dams and lagoons in agricultural land and in coastal wetlands. Males have been known to migrate up to one kilometre to reach breeding sites. The female lays up to 3,900 eggs. Tadpoles take anywhere between four and fifteen months to complete development. This variation in development time is due to water temperature - metamorphosis is slower in colder conditions.
