Dwarf Tree Frog:  Litoria bicolor

  • Also known as the Northern Dwarf Tree Frog.

Habitat:

  • It is a leaf and plant stem dwelling species that is often found in hot and dry situations.

Size:

  • It is three centimetres in length, making the Dwarf Tree-frog one of the smallest tree-frogs in Australia

Call:

  • The call is an interesting high-pitched " wree-e-eck pippip"

Additional Information:

  • A cute, green little fella, distinguished by it's size, and orange on the thigh.

  • It can be distinguished by it's near identical relative, the Green Reed Frog, Litoria fallax, by a barely discernable pale stripe along the side where the green upperparts and the cream underparts meet.

  • Like it's southern relative, this frog is usually found perched nimbly on green reeds in water.
