Indoor recording in terrarium  18 August 2020  16:00h

Calling song/stridulation from a single captive male Short-winged Conehead (Conocephalus dorsalis) in a terrarium with an adult female.

A rapid, high-pitched hissing produced in very long bursts (up to 9 minutes without a break), interspersed with quieter 'half-speed' ticking sections, like the free-wheel of a bicycle (at 25.4C ambient room temp, no heat lamp or direct sun).
