The Australian green tree frog, (Litoria caerulea) is a species of tree frog native to Australia and New Guinea. The species belongs to the genus Litoria. It is physiologically similar to some species of the genus, particularly the magnificent tree frog (L. splendida) and the giant tree frog (L. infrafrenata).
The green tree frog is larger than most Australian frogs, reaching 10 cm (4 in) in length. The average lifespan of the frog in captivity, about 16 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 green tree frog screams when it is in danger to scare off its foe, and squeaks when it is touched.
Due to its physical and behavioural traits, the green tree frog has become one of the most recognisable frogs in its region, and is a popular exotic pet throughout the world. The skin secretions of the frog have antibacterial and antiviral properties that may prove useful in pharmaceutical preparations.

Hello Maurie,
What a pretty tree frog you have presented to us. Gorgeous lime green color and very distinct body features. I don't know when I saw a frog with such smooth looking skin as this, could probably do a commercial for facial skin cream:)
Great use of flash in order to bring out colors. Focus is sharp showing very good detail. Well done!!
PS. The tree frogs we have here in Ohio look much different then this.
