Tonight was the night of the striped rocket frogs (Litoria nasuta). Rocket frogs get their common name from their incredible jumping capability. They are certainly the most difficult frog to catch in the Top End. Hundreds of them could be heard calling in the wetlands, and water pythons (Liasis fuscus) were on the prowl.
