A Huge, Nocturnal Frog!
The Australian green tree frog, known simply the "green tree frog" in Australia, also White's tree frog, or dumpy tree frog (Litoria caerulea) is a species of tree frog native to Australia and New Guinea (with introduced populations in New Zealand and the United States). The green tree frog is physically similar and related to some other species of its genus, particularly the magnificent tree frog (L. splendida) and the giant tree frog (L. infrafrenata).

The green tree frog is larger than most Australian frogs, reaching 4 inches (10 cm) in length. The average lifespan of the frog in captivity, about 16 years, is long in comparison with most frogs. Green tree frogs are docile and well suited to living near human dwellings. They are often found on windows or inside houses, eating insects drawn by the light. The green tree frog screams when it is in danger to scare off its foe, and squeaks when it is touched.

This amphibian is nocturnal, becoming active during the early evening. During the day they prefer cool, dark and moist areas to sleep, such as tree holes or rock crevices.

Due to its physical and behavioral traits, the green tree frog has become one of the most recognizable frogs in the Land Down Under, and is a popular exotic pet throughout the world. The skin secretions of the frog have antibacterial and antiviral properties that may prove useful in pharmaceutical preparations.
