Pepeketua is the Maori name for the very ancient and primitive native New Zealand frogs of which there are four species.
They are unique from most other frogs worldwide as they have no external eardrums,
they have round (not slit) eyes, they don't croak regularly like most frogs and
they don't have a tadpole stage.
The young hatch from their eggs as almost fully-formed frogs. The young of most species of these native species are cared for by their parents - for example, the male Archey's frog will often carry his young offspring around on his back.
Carved from deer antler from farmed New Zealand red deer.
Species = Cervus elaphus
