É um anfíbio de hábitos essencialmente nocturnos podendo viver até aos 12 anos. Alimenta-se de pequenos insectos como escaravelhos e moscas.

Fácilmente identificável pelos seus olhos verdes e pela particularidade de se deslocar em pequenos sprints em vez dos saltos usados pelos primos de outras espécies.
