Unlike their fast-talking relatives (see first photo), the Litoria jungguy frog species (above) lacks a vocal sac. Instead the amphibian broadcasts a soft, purring trill to attract females, conservationists say.

Found in the rain forest streams of Queensland state, the frog is one of 13 new amphibians found in Australia in the past decade, according to a WWF report released in September 2009.
