Male frogs cry to call females, and their voices vary from species to species.When males and females of different species come together, offspringIs not left.In this CD, the Schlegel tree frog is clear against the background of the constantly crowing tree frog.There is a contrast between the muffled voice and the muffled voice of the Tonosama frog.Even if you know Ama and Tonosama,Many people don't know the name of Juregel.However, the lord of the name is Seabol, a Dutch national.He was entrusted with the collection in Japan and investigated it, and he has a continuous connection with Mr. Hess, a Dutchman.It's interesting to think about.
