Reproduction

Males call at night while in vegetation about 1–2 metres above the ground, along streams, and also by ditches. When the weather is dry, a calling green bright-eyed frog has also been found up as high as 5 m. The calls are a combination of two inharmonious note types that include a long note repeated in short pulses and a shorter note consisting of three repeated notes.

Breeding takes place in streams. One pair of frogs can have as many as 154 dark-brown eggs.
