The bumpy rocket frog or Peters' frog (Litoria inermis) is an abundant species of frog in the Hylidae family. It is endemic to northern Australia, south to Maryborough, Queensland.

Habitat

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical swamps, dry savanna, subtropical or tropical dry lowland grassland, and intermittent freshwater marshes, especially around rain-filled pools.

Description

Adults are about 35 mm, tadpoles about 42 mm. They are brown or grey with many small warts and darker patches on their backs. Their toes are half to three-quarters webbed, and the fingers are not webbed.

Mating calls

Similar to the striped rocket frog (L. nasuta), their calls are a few 'clucks', then a rapid series of 'weks' for some seconds, then a few more 'clucks'.

Eggs

Their eggs are laid in clumps of about 96 to 330 brown eggs on temporary pool surfaces.
