With large flat fingers and toe discs, the Green Tree Frog can be found regularly scaling Hayman’s greenery. In January, breeding begins, and the male frogs’ deep calls to females can be heard across the island.
This particular frog species can grow up to 10cm (4 inches) in length and is often found on the underside of leaves.However, you need to look closely to find one of these frogs as they change colour to camouflage themselves in their surroundings, often ranging from brown to green.
With the Northern Tropical Queensland weather that Hayman experiences, Green Tree Frogs tend to hide in the day in cold moist areas, as their skin needs to be continuously damp. So, you are more likely to catch a glimpse of the Green Tree Frog at night. This is when the predominately nocturnal frogs come out to hunt.
