|Green Eyed Tree Frog: : (Litoria genimaculata)
The appearance of this frog has evolved to match its surroundings. This is
achieved by small pieces of skin which are formed on the edge of the amphibians limbs,
thus breaking up the obvious frog outline, making it difficult to see. This is also
accompanied by colours and shapes on its skin that make it quite cryptic.
The general colouration is variable - basically brown, reddish-brown or olive
with occassional darker patches.
Usually have a large patch between their eyes of a dark or russet colour.
