Green Tree Frogs (aka White's Tree Frogs or Dumpy Tree Frogs) - Australia/New Guinea

Litoria caerulea

RECOMMENDED FOR AUDIENCES:
1 - 100 YEARS OLD

Diet

These nocturnal, patient hunters have a big appetite for insects and spiders which they can swallow whole because they have dull teeth.

Lifecycle

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.

Interesting Facts

Their color changes based on mood and temperature and they secrete caerins that contain both antibacterial and antiviral properties.
