Litoria chloris — Red-eyed Treefrog
Some other names for this species:
Southern Orange-eyed Treefrog, Australian Red-eyed Treefrog, Red-eyed Green Treefrog
on grounds of Mt. Glorious Getaway Cottages, Queensland, Australia—February 17, 2003
This frog was desperately seeking female companionship in, on, and near a metal water tank that was already teeming with tiny froglets, perhaps the result of one of this frog's earlier dalliances.
Here is a complete list of the reptiles and frogs I saw on this trip to Australia.
on grounds of O'Reilly's Rainforest Guesthouse, Queensland, Australia—February 19, 2003
These frogs have very loud and distinctive calls, relatively easy to trace to the source. I followed the quacking to this big male at the edge of the rainforest just a few dozen yards from our room at O'Reilly's.
