An agile climber and jumper. Like most of our small tree
frogs, this species is a voracious insectivore.
Males usually call from the ground or in low vegetation,
at the water's edge or in water, floating amongst the vegetation.
The call is a series of rapid harsh, whirring pulsing notes
repeated 5-15 times - 'creeeeeee creee creee cree cree cree'.
The first note is usually the longest.
