Main Characteristics

Red Eyed Tree Frogs are bright green in colour on their back with a yellow coloured, granular underside. In adults the back of the thighs may be purple/black in colour and the inner part of their hands and the top of their front legs are yellow.

They have large finger and toe pads with their fingers being three quarter webbed and their toes being almost fully webbed. They have horizontal pupils and the iris is golden near the pupil but becomes red towards the outside of the eye.

In rare cases they may have randomly placed yellow spots on their back. Their call is several long moaning "Aaa-rk" followed by soft trills.


Red Eyed Tree Frogs inhabit the wet sclerophyll forests, rainforests and grasslands of eastern Australia.


Red Eyed Tree Frogs feed upon insects.


Breeding occurs after rain during spring and summer in temporary ponds, ditches and streams. Males call to attract females and eggs are laid in small clusters attached to twigs and stems.

Medium sized tadpoles hatch and these are coloured either grey or brown. Sometimes they can have gold pigmentation running along each side.

Female Red Eyed Tree Frogs begin reproducing when they reach 2 - 3 years old.
