Written Submissions Professor Grigg Volume 2 Cane Toad Inquiry Report 99 Sites furthest from Mataranka are at the top. This is one of the very few species for which the number of records has increased during the course of the study. Figure 5: Proportion of days each wet season of records with the giant burrowing frog Cyclorana australis present, for each station. Sites furthest from Mataranka are at the top. The proportion of days on which this species was recorded remained similar through time at each site.
