This is one of a group of young White’s tree frogs on show in the Discovery Room. At present they are small but grow quickly and will eventually reach around 10cm in length. They are nocturnal and feed largely on insects but are able to eat other frogs and even small mammals.
In the wild they are found in a range of habitats in Australia and New Guinea. This adaptable nature means they are a not currently endangered, indeed they can often be found living around settlements in out buildings They are able to make a loud ‘scream’ when attacked by a predator.
