Pale Rocket Frog
A medium-sized elongate ground-dwelling frog. It has an elongate, angled head with thin fingers and small discs with webbing at the base and long hindlimbs with toes half-webbed. The colour is a pale grey (hence pallida) with distinct stripes on the sides of the head and yellow markings on the thighs. To 4 cm SVL.
Males call from open areas close to water.
A drawn out 'meeep...meeep...meeep' with a waver near the end, with shorter 'chucks' often added at the beginning or end.
Females have been found to lay between 96-350 eggs on the surface of temporary water bodies.
Tadpoles are brown and reach a length of 5 cm before metamorphosing as early as 5 weeks.
It is very difficult to distinguish among the calls of all the Rocket Frogs.
