Another day in the wet tropics pays us with the visit of a calm and relaxed white lipped tree frog. It was probably 11-13cm long (5 inches), the biggest I have seen, probably a female as males usually reach 10cm max (4 inches). The wet season gives the opportunity to see them in unexpected places and hear them coaking away, they enjoy leafy backyards and wet weather... Great weather for a frog it was!
