White's Tree Frog Photo

These “smiling” frogs and their cute, pudgy bodies have captured the hearts of many people. The common name of the species, "White's Tree Frog", is in honor of John White's first description in 1790.

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 Green Tree Frog screams when it's in danger to scare off its foe; and this particular frog squeaks when it is touched.

Here's a good little book on the subject: The Guide to Owning a White's Tree Frog
