Today I want to write about a pretty little frog, the dainty tree frog.

Here are five interesting facts about them:

  1. These tiny little frogs only grow to about 4.5 cm long.
  2. They like to live in banana trees so they often transported with bunches of bananas to other states of Australia, which gives them their other name, the banana frog.
  3. Dainty tree frogs hide during the day and come out at night to hunt and eat small insects and invertebrates.
  4. At breeding time the females lay their eggs in small clumps on plants above water and the tadpoles take about two months to turn into adult frogs.
  5. Dainty tree frogs are common and can be found on floating plants, reeds and trees in marshes, forests and plantations in Queensland and northern New South Wales.

I hope that you found these facts interesting and learned something new.

Are there any other interesting facts that you would like to share about dainty tree frogs?
