A group of animal lovers that consists of Chris Watson, Mark Carter, and Samantha Hopley met with hundreds of these frogs on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at near the historic site Emily Gap. "It was the first time I saw them in the big numbers," They emerged from the underground and breed," said Watson.

Watson claimed first heard the sound of this frogs when guiding the tourist near Uluru rock formations, also in the northern region of Australia. "As soon as the rain fell, they began to make a sound, and then I think someone were releasing the sheep to the area!" he says.






Sheep frogs species live underground until rarely seen. However, when it rains in large quantities, they will rise to the top of the soil and breed. The characteristic mark of sheep frogs was a longitudinal stripe on their back. And Watson also warned that if there are a lot of frogs, normally there will also be a snake in the same area.. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ABC]
