Red-eyed_Frog.JPG (37071 bytes)Red-eyed Tree Frog (Litoria chloris): has a maximum length of 65 mm. It is bright leaf-green above and white to yellow below. The species has large finger and toe discs, which are usually a feature of tree frogs. The Red-eyed Tree Frog is found along the east coast from Gosford, north of Sydney, to southern Queensland. The distinctive call has been described as 9 to 12 aaa-rkís sometimes punctuated by short chirrups.
The specimen, in the photo, lives in the vicinity of a small pond, constructed by our son-in-law, near Gosford. This is close to the southern end of this frogís range. Prior to the pondís construction no frogs had been observed or heard in the vicinity. Now the Red-eyed Tree Frog and two other species have taken up residence.
