Australian Green Tree Frog (FEMALE)

Litoria caerulea)

Description:

The common green tree frog is a large, robust frog with moderately sized legs. Males grow up to 90 mm, and females to 115 mm. It is usually bright green with golden eyes, sometimes with white spots on sides and back. Like all tree frogs, they have large flat discs on fingers and toes to help with climbing.

Habitat:

The common green treefrog occurs in all habitats from desert to coastal swamps, including dry vine thickets, but not dense tropical rainforest. In the dry season they shelter under bark, in tree hollows, in and under logs, and under rocks. This species is sometimes found in toilets, bathrooms, drain pipes and suburban gardens. It is commonly attracted to lights. The species occurs throughout mainland Australia and New Guinea.

Notes:

Interesting news how the frogs are mining for water.. http://www.abc.net.au/science/articles/2...
