DAY FIVE. Red-eye Tree frog Litoria chloris
The beautiful Red-eyed Tree frogs are mainly found in wet rain forests scattered from central NSW through to Mackay in Far Nth Qld. They are vocal frogs particularly calling prior to rain and during thunder storms. This short video is a great example of a male frog, first calling to attract and impress a mate, but then followed by a series of 3 short trills which are thought to be a territorial call, as it’s usually heard in response to an approaching male.
