This technique is why the species has a long breeding season.
Young remain within the family group until next breeding season.
The area maintained is large enough to support the group in poor years or to accommodate new members after a good breeding season.
There is a single breeding season each year, which occurs during the winter.
In continental Europe at least, the species has a short breeding season, of 52-55 days.
Both parents help to rear the young, which remain with them until the next breeding season.
They have an extended breeding season during the summer months.
The frogs are not known to survive a second breeding season.
They reach full size after around six months, but can remain with their family until the next breeding season half a year later.
By the next breeding season, the previous years young often flock together.
October marked the start of the rainy season and probably this is the normal breeding period.
There is a seasonal pattern in the breeding period of the birds.
It would mean too that the breeding period of older specimens was extended.
During the breeding period, this behavior is repeated almost every day for a month or longer.
The breeding period can last up to 11 days, and a female usually mates with four males during that time.
The average length of the breeding period is 6.8 months.
Pairing of a male and a female may be limited to the breeding period.
Males will fight for groups of females which form during the breeding period.
This species can have several generations within their breeding period due to the fast rate of growth.
The length of the breeding period depends on the rainfall and may last a month or only few days.
