Bleating Tree Frog • Litoria dentata

Bleating Tree Frog (Litoria dentata)

The Bleating Tree Frog is around 5 to 7 cm long when full grown. It has mottled brownish grey skin, with a dark smudge running from the tip of its nose to its tail, and another brown line through its eye and ear. Its eye is any colour from red to gold, and it has webbed feet.

The Bleating Tree Frog lives in forest, woodland, swamps, and heath. However, it is often found in people’s gardens, especially in drainpipes, where it is nice and damp. It ranges from southern Queensland to southern New South Wales, mostly on the east coast.

Breeding season is spring and summer. This tree frog has a very strange call, sounding like a sheep or a goat, but higher-pitched, and very loud - almost painful. After the eggs are fertilized, they sink. Females can breed when they are two years old.
