I love doing the frogs because it gives me an opportunity to use some of the colors that I never use!! You could almost call this a “study in green”.. but it’s a “White’s Tree Frog” (least wise that’s what the photo said).
The Australian Green Tree Frog, simply Green Tree Frog in Australia, White’s Tree Frog, or Dumpy Tree Frog (Litoria caerulea) is a species of tree frog native to Australia and New Guinea, with introduced populations in New Zealand and the United States. The species belongs to the genus Litoria. It is physiologically similar to some species of the genus, particularly the Magnificent Tree Frog (Litoria splendida) and the Giant Tree Frog (Litoria infrafrenata).
The Green Tree Frog is a large species compared with 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 (info from Wikipedia).
