Appearance

These frogs are fairly large, reaching sizes of 2.5 to 4.0 in in length. Adult frogs are light grey in colour with brown or black banding, while juveniles will exhibit stronger contrasts. As they age, their skin develops a slightly bumpy texture.

The "milk" in the common name comes from the milky fluid these frogs excrete when stressed.
