Litoria ewingi

The male Australian Southern Brown Tree Frog, Litoria ewingi, has found that its mating call doesn’t carry well over the noise of traffic. Recently they’ve overcome this problem by singing in a higher pitch, but there’s a bit of a trade-off apparently, as the females prefer baritones to tenors. What they need is a microphone and an amp with good bass.
