The deep growling sounds of the male Growling Grass Frog is what has given this species its unusual name! This species lives in very wet areas of Victoria, NSW and the ACT.

D. Leadbeater's Possum

Colour pencil and pastel drawing of Leadbeater's Possum

This greyish-brown marsupial lives in forests made up of smooth-barked eucalypts and wattles. The numbers of this endangered possum are in decline because it needs to nest in the hollows of very old native trees.
