orange-thighed frog

Male Orange-thighed Frogs congregate around still ponds, and call from low branches, or the edge of the water. The call is a long "aaa-rk", followed by a soft trill. They call after heavy monsoon rain. The males call in a large chorus; amplexus occurs where the frog calls, and the male and female move to the laying site. The eggs are brown, and are in masses of 800 to 1600. The tadpoles are identical in appearance to the Red-eyed Tree Frog.

The Orange-thighed Frog (Litoria xanthomera) is a tree frog native to a small area in tropical northern Queensland, Australia. It is a green frog with distinctly orange eyes, and is very similar in appearance to the Red-eyed Tree Frog (Litoria chloris).
