Green Tree Frogs (aka White's Tree Frogs or Dumpy Tree Frogs) - Australia/New Guinea
RECOMMENDED FOR AUDIENCES:
1 - 100 YEARS OLD
These nocturnal, patient hunters have a big appetite for insects and spiders which they can swallow whole because they have dull teeth.
The female will lay hundreds to thousands of eggs that are fertilized externally. Within 2-4 days the tadpoles hatch and then develop for 6-8 weeks before metamorphosing into frogs. Adults grow to be about 4 inches long and live 16 years in captivity.
Their color changes based on mood and temperature and they secrete caerins that contain both antibacterial and antiviral properties.
