We found this Green Tree Frog – Litoria caerulea today. The first frog we have seen in our four years restoring Fox Gully. Click on photo to enlarge.

Not all our native frogs are this easy to identify. Our frogs range from the size of a finger nail to these Green Tree Frogs which can grow to 10cm. Colours range from this bright green to shades of brown, yelllow and grey – like the Striped Marshfrog Limnodyynastes peronii. It is sometimes easy to confuse our native frogs with Cane Toads – Bufo marinus.
