Baby Tree Frog

Litoria sp.

Description:

Tiny green frog (about 2cm long) with yellow feet and belly and orange eyes.

Habitat:

Found on a concrete path in a seaside resort.

Notes:

I noticed this tiny frog sitting in full sun on the path outside the cafe where we were having lunch today. I thought it must have been a leaf, especially when a baby snake came out onto the path right next to it and went straight on past! However, when my husband and I went to look closer we found that it was, indeed, a tiny frog. There was no natural water source nearby so we took it to a creek about a block away. We are almost certain it is a Dainty/Graceful Tree Frog (Litoria gracilenta) but it could be a Red-eyed Tree Frog (Litoria chloris).
