Javan torrent frog
|Javan Torrent Frog|
Huia javana Yang, 1991
Javan torrent frog males use high-frequency communication to overcome the noise of their riverine habitats that is dominated by low frequencies. The second harmonic of the calls is ultrasonic. Warbles are highly diverse and may function as vocal signatures.
- Concave-eared Torrent Frog (Odorrana tormota), the first frog demonstrated to both produce and perceive ultrasonic frequencies
- Hole-in-the-head Frog (Huia cavitympanum), a truly ultrasonic frog
