Maud Island Frogs.

Maud Island frogs, are one of the four frogs that a native to New Zealand, and they a different to other frogs.

Normal frogs live in water but this Maud Island frog doesn't. The reason why Maud Island frogs don’t live in water, is because they don’t have webbed feet thats why they live in damp places. Maud Island frogs live at Marlborough Sounds, and they live in bushes, trees, steep hills, under rotten logs and above sea level.

Maud Island frogs are carnivores, eating Beetles, Insects, larvae and worms. The way that Maud island frogs catch their food is not similar to any other frog. They catch them by pouncing and shoving them in their mouth EWW!!.

Their predators for Maud Island frogs A lizards. They sneak up on the frogs when they a busy then they get them very fast like a snap.There are only a few Maud Island Frogs. because the rats from another habitat, brought the disease to the Island that why they got rid of all the rats at Maud Island.

I really hope that these frogs can survive the Island and also that the rats can find another place to stay instead of spreading diseases around Maud Island.
