White's Tree Frog

We just learned about the Lemur Tree Frog.

Another type of frog is the White's Tree Frog, also called the Australian Green Tree Frog or Dumpy Tree Frog.

This kind of frog lives in Australia and New Guinea.

It is a very calm frog and does not mind living by humans, so sometimes people find these frogs sitting on their window sills or in their houses eating insects that are drawn in by the light.

When this frog gets scared, it will make a screaming sound that sounds like a little kid screaming, to try and scare away it's predator.

These frogs are big eaters, and will eat most insects, some spiders and even sometimes bats!
