These sticks often had a dual purpose being used for digging as well as for throwing at small game and birds . Water was often a difficult commodity to obtain in Central Australia and sometimes it could be found in the frog ( Cheiroleptes Platycephalus ) which was accustomed to fill up with water and then bury itself in the mud . It would be dug out with sticks such as these and squeezed dry .
