Abstract

[Abstract] Foot flagging behavior by male Litoria nannotis has only been observed in the presence of conspecific males, and the display was presumed to be related to male-male aggression (Richards and James 1992. Mem. Queensland Mus. 32:302). In this note we describe, for the first time, foot flagging by a male L. nannotis in the presence of a female.
