Litoria caerulea (Green Tree Frog)

Status: Least Concern.

Jon spotted this guy clinging to the outside of our kitchen window from about 20m. He was 2 at the time, and at first we didn't beleive him. We should have known better. Now I just need to get him a head lamp and start training him to see "eye shine".

For those not quite so mad as to go out at all hours in the wet looking for frogs, the easiest way to find them is by altering a LED headlamp so that the LED sit right between you eyes, which lets you pick up much more eye shine - like a cat in you headlights etc. Seeing the big guys like this is no problem, but tiny little 20mm frogs - that takes keen eyes and practice.
