About the Magnificent Tree Frog

Geographic Range:

rangeImg.Name

Class: Amphibia
Order: Anura
Family: Hylidae
Genus: Litoria
Species: splendida

These nocturnal frogs are found in moist forest habitats like caves. They're semi-aquatic, spending most of their time in and around bodies of water. This frog has a large poison gland located on the back of its head, the largest poison gland of all Australian amphibians. While harmless to humans, the poison is strong enough to deter birds and snakes.
