Litoria chloris (Red-eyed Tree Frog)

IUCN Status: Least Concern

It's safe to say that chloris is the prettiest frog I've photographed so far. They are reasonably easy to find when conditions are right, have a boldness and spunk. Their call is very distinctive, so much so that our son could do a recognisable impression at only 3 years old.

Chloris used to be extreme common in rainforest from south east Queensland up as far as Carins. However cytrid fungus has eliminated them from many areas, as it has many other species. It seems particularly potent in higher altitudes, so chloris is now easier to find in the lower areas.
