Tasmanian Tree FrogFound only in Tasmania, the Tasmanian tree frog (Litoria burrowsae) is restricted to the west of the State. It is an attractive frog, with a green back, often patterned with brown. It can occur in rainforest and buttongrass plains. It can grow up to 60mm long.
The Tasmanian tree frog breeds mainly in spring and summer but may breed opportunistically at any time of the year after heavy rain. Tadpoles occur in stationary or slowly flowing water.
During the spring and summer it calls with a distinctive duck-like quank-quank-quank.
