white-lipped tree frog

Litoria infrafrenata

Description:

Also known as the giant tree frog, Litoria infrafrenata is the world's largest tree frog, but this individual is a small juvenile. This species is native to the rainforests of northern Queensland, Australia, New Guinea, the Bismarck Islands and the Admiralty Islands. This species is nocturnal and the individual seen here is resting out the day in the fold of a leaf.

Habitat:

Observed on yellow walking iris (Neomarica longifolia) in a large semi-urban yard & garden near a disturbed patch of remnant forest.

Notes:

The second photo was overly green so some contrasting enhancement was done.
