The desert frog spends most of its time burrowing under the ground. It feeds off beetles and other insects found on dung. Reproduction happens between June and October. The males sometimes call in choruses, where one male calls and the others call after. The frogs don’t have a tadpole stage; instead, they emerge from the eggs as froglets, sometimes with tails. It’s been said to be the world’s cutest frog.
