|Dainty Green Tree Frog: ( Litotria gracilenta)
Close relative of the Yellow-thighed Tree-frog, but differs from it by being
smaller in size.
The hind side of the thighs can be a maroon or reddish-brown colour.
Can adopt a inconspicuous flattened posture by holding its limbs tight against
its body, closing its eyes and retracting them, thus exposing only its leaf green
- May be found on floating vegetations, on reeds in swamps and streams or in shrub
or tree foliage along rivers.
