What is the animal Litoria known for?

Litoria is a genus of hylid tree frogs, sometimes collectively referred to as Australasian treefrogs.
They are known for their diversity in appearance, behaviour, and habitat.

Some of the features that make Litoria frogs remarkable are:
  • They are extremely variable in size, ranging from 1.6 cm to 14 cm in snout-to-vent length.
  • They have different adaptations to their environments, such as webbed toes, adhesive discs, bright colours, or camouflage patterns.
  • They have diverse vocalizations, such as bleating, buzzing, or whistling, to communicate with each other.
  • They have complex life cycles, involving metamorphosis from aquatic tadpoles to terrestrial or arboreal adults.
  • They are ecologically important, as they prey on insects and other invertebrates, and serve as food for birds, reptiles, mammals, and fish.
Litoria frogs are also of interest to humans, as they are often kept as pets, studied for their biology and evolution, or used as indicators of environmental health.
Some species, such as the green tree frog (Litoria caerulea), are iconic and widely recognized in Australia.
However, many Litoria frogs are also threatened by habitat loss, pollution, disease, invasive species, and climate change.
Therefore, they need conservation efforts to protect their diversity and survival.
