Litoria caerulea
Whites Tree Frog, Animal Parties School Presentations

Whites tree frogs come from Australasia and Indonesia. Females are larger than the males and can grow up to 10 cm or 4 inches long and live more than 20 years in captivity. They spend most of their lives in trees and are active mostly at night. Insects are their main diet but really any animal that will fit into their mouths is considered as food. It is obvious the whites tree frog did not get its name because of their colour. The name actually refers to the scientist who discovered them. These frogs are able to change their colours from bright green to olive brown even to a shade of blue, in fact the second part to their scientific name “caerulea” is Latin for blue.
