Critter of the Week

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:27 pm on 24 August 2018

Hamilton’s frogs are home-bodies extraordinaire! – moving around only a few square metres in their entire life.  DOC’s Threatened Species Ambassador, Nicola Toki, explains that this is only one of the oddball features of this endemic frog – there’s no croaking, tadpoles or webbed toes either.
