Choruses of these frogs can be heard on warm days in spring. Their call sounds
sort of like when you run your finger down a comb. I came upon a group that was calling one warm day, and walked into
the middle of where they were calling from. After a few minutes of silence, the frogs became accustomed to my presence,
and began calling. The noise was deafening, and I had a ringing in my ears for hours after I left.
