Southern Orange-eyed Treefrog - Litoria chloris

Southern Orange-eyed Treefrog - Litoria chloris

Litoria chloris, also commonly known as the red-eyed tree frog or orange-eyed tree frog, is a species of tree frog native to eastern Australia; ranging from north of Sydney to Proserpine in mid-northern Queensland. The red-eyed tree frog is a uniform bright green above, occasionally with yellow spots, and bright yellow on the underside. The front sides of the arms and legs are green, while the underside is yellow or white. The thighs may be blue/purple to blue/black in colour in adults. It has golden eyes at the centre, which change to red towards the edge of the eye. The intensity of the eye colour is variable between frogs. The tympanum is visible, and a mature frog reaches a size of 65 mm. The tadpoles are generally grey or brown, and can have gold pigment along the side. A similar species, the orange-thighed frog (Litoria xantheroma) is found north of Proserpine and has orange on the back of the thighs.
