Green Tree Frog

Litoria caerulea

Green Tree Frogs are frequently found near human habitation like houses, toilets, pipes and brickwork, as well as their natural habitat of forests and wetlands.

As their name suggests, the frogs are green with a white underbelly and yellowish thighs. Their fingers are partially webbed and their toes are webbed with large toe discs. They grow to approximately eleven centimetres.

The Green Tree Frog’s diet includes spiders, crickets lizards, other frogs and cockroaches. When in captivity it will even eat small mice.

The mating call of the male Green Tree Frog is a distinct croaking. After mating the female produces a layer of eggs that sit just below the surface of shallow water.
