The range of the Western Banjo Frog is just a little larger than the WA Wheatbelt zone, extending from the Murchison River (500 km north of Perth) to around 200 km east of Esperance. However there are other Banjo Frogs in Australia, so their call is known far and wide. The Eastern Banjo Frog, Limnodynastes dumerillii occurs from Adelaide to around Brisbane including most of Victoria and Tasmania. Then there is the Giant Banjo Frog, Limnodynastes interioris that inhabits central NSW and northern Victoria. And lastly the Northern Banjo Frog, Limnodynastes terraereginae that occurs from central NSW to the top of Cape York Peninsula. So if you like the sound of the banjo, there is plenty to keep you amused. Another name for this frog is Pobblebonk.
Frogs are very reliant on suitable habitat and if that habitat is destroyed or altered, the frogs are often the first to suffer. Even if you have many frogs, if they are of the same species then you should be looking at providing greater diversity of habitat so other species can find a place too. Attracting frogs to your garden is much like attracting birds; it can be an absorbing hobby to see how many species you can accommodate. But it is important not to collect frogs from one area and introduce them to another, as a serious frog fungal disease can also be introduced by this means that can devastate frog populations and even kill entire species. So if you provide the habitat, they will move in of their own accord, where hopefully they can then build their numbers to spread to other suitable areas. This is a terrific way of being eco-friendly.
