The finding is based on a study conducted on a population of tree frogs in south eastern Taipei.
In the suburban and rural areas across Taiwan, open concrete drains are a common feature and built alongside paved roads or foot-trails. The researchers noticed that the frogs intentionally leaped into the drains and produced their mating calls. The concrete drain is referred to as miniature urban canyons by researchers.
The same behavior was noticed when researchers created a replica of the concrete drains. The male frogs opted for the drains to do their calling.
According to Discovery News, the males "selected perches inside drains that facilitated call transmission."
