The White-lipped Tree Frog (Litoria infrafrenata) is the world’s largest species of tree frog and is native to the wet tropics of Queensland as well as parts of New Guinea. They are found in rainforests, mangroves, swamps and even in parks and gardens in urban areas.
This species makes a loud, barking call most often heard in the rainy season. It also makes a cat-like mewing sound when distressed. Choruses of male White-lipped Tree Frogs calling in the breeding season can be deafening!
