The Motorbike Frog is the most common frog found in the southwest region of Western Australia found in local lakes and swamps. Getting its name from the call, which is reminiscent of a motorbike changing gears, they call in the breeding season.
If you live in Western Australia’s southwest, you may never have seen this frog, but you may have heard its call. The origin of the common name, ‘Pobblebonk’, is the loud solitary bonk sound made during the breeding season. It is also called the Western Banjo Frog.
