All things Frog

There are about 241 species (or kinds) and 5 subspecies of frogs known in Australia with possibly more to be discovered. Most of these only occur in Australia.

Of these:

*4 species are presumed extinct,because none have been found for so long,

*15 are critically endangered,

*10 are endangered, including Mixophyes iteratus, the Giant barred frog, which is in our collection and

*12 species are vulnerable (meaning they may soon become endangered). 3 of which are available to be seen at The Frogarium!

(The 4 species mentioned above are all counted as endangered within NSW)
