Kordbolbok (Frog),

We hear kordbolbok (frogs) at night, telling us when it’s about to rain. Kordbolbok lay their eggs in the wet season, and these eggs become tadpoles which then become actual frogs. Another, bad kind of frog (Cane Toads), has also come now, and finished off the goannas. We don’t see any goannas any more. Another word for kordbolbok is djaddi.
