The other day as I went to open the front door in the morning, guess who was at my doorstep? This little tree frog that I had seen a few times before was looking a little lost and didn't know which way to go!;) I helped it out with a little stick (on which it climbed) and then I placed it next to my Monstera plant. It quickly grasped a new leaf and stayed like that for several minutes giving me the opportunity to take several shots.
The Common Indian tree frog/Polypedates maculatus is mostly brownish, yellowish, greyish, or whitish with darker spots and markings. They are about 7 to 8 centimetres in body length. Their call is a sudden short and rapid series of rattling rats-tats. It is widespread throughout Bhutan, India, Nepal, and Srilanka as well as western and southern Bangladesh. Its range might also extend to China and Myanmar.
They have dry roosts that they may use regularly. They wipe themselves with skin secretions consisting of mucus and lipids that help in reducing moisture loss. When temperatures are higher, they secrete from the skin, pant and adopt lighter colours. (Source: Wikipedia).
Here are some facts about frogs that I found online:-
Frogs shed their skin several times a year. They also eat their skin.
A group of frogs is called an army and a group of toads is called a knot!
In Brazil, the world's only fruit eating frog leaps with its mouth wide open at ripe fruit hanging on trees.
The world's biggest frog is the Goliath frog/Conraua goliath. They can grow to nearly a foot in length.
