Camera Critters Tree Frog
To enlarge click on photos.
One night when I wanted to wash the dishes in my daughter's house in Cooktown, this little guy appeared on the doorstep. He was so slow and therefore I could easily take some photos. There are always plenty of Green Tree Frogs in her house around. They are like pets and very useful, for they eat cockroaches! Two of her tree frogs hid behind a painting on the wall, others in the bathroom.
The Green Tree Frog is larger than most Australian frogs, reaching 10 centimetres (4 inches) in length. The average lifespan of the frog in captivity, about sixteen years, is long in comparison with most frogs. Green Tree Frogs are docile and well suited to living near human dwellings. They are often found on windows or inside houses, eating insects drawn by the light.
The frogs can climb walls and trees. They are so green that it looks quite unnaturel.They hardly move and you can't see them breathing.
