Main’s Frog • Cyclorana maini
This water-holding frog has adapted to desert conditions. This species lives in some of the harshest country in the arid region of Central Australia. Usually found in temporary pools in watercourses, claypans and other short-lived bodies of water, its habitat also include open grassland, lightly forested areas and temporary marshes and streambeds in temporary flood plains.

Grouped together with other burrowing frogs, it survives the dry periods by absorbing water into its body, burrowing deep underground, and encasing itself in a watertight bag (cocoon), awaiting the next major rain fall.
