RED EYED GREEN TREE FROG Litoria chloris (Boulenger, 1893)
A spectacular medium to large frog of 6 cm, it is found in rainforest and adjacent habitats along the east coast of NSW and Queensland.
The sound of large numbers of this frog calling in rainforests after rain at night can be very loud indeed.
The call is a series of long 'moans' sometimes followed by a soft 'trill'. It breeds in permanent and semi-permanent water holes, swamps, and similar places, apparently avoiding fast flowing streams.
The breeding season is throughout the warmer months but apparently peaks in early December when this frog is apparently most abundant. Most specimens are found crossing roads on rainy nights.
The above was from the book Australian Reptiles and Frogs by Raymond Hoser and now available on a fantastic CD-Rom along with a vast amount of other information, papers and the like on reptiles, frogs and other wildlife.
