Order: Anura

Distribution: Coastal Areas of Australia, Southern PNG

Field Notes: This species of frog is very variable in colour and patterning. It reaches 55 mm in length, has extremely long legs and is very streamlined. Although being a 'tree frog' (Litoria) this species spends most of its life as a frog on the land, due to its inability to climb because of its small discs. (Wikipedia)
