Green Tree-frog

Each exquisite handcrafted Australian frog is life size and made from polymer clay and natural materials. Average weight of each item is 550g, height varies. As each piece is individually made, no two works are identical. Other Australian frogs will be available from time to time.

The Red-eyed tree frog is a stock item and is available all the time. All frogs are available singly or as a series. No frogs or parts thereof were used at any stage in the production of these sculptures.

One frog from each of the seven states and territories of Australia has been selected for this series.

The seven frogs in the 'Collector's Series' are as seen below and are numbered #1 to #7.

Collector's Series.

#1
Red-eyed Tree-frog.
(Litoria chloris)
As this Australian frog lives at least 5m above ground in the canopy of the rainforests, it is seldom seen. It descends only to breed, when large numbers of males congregate around temporary pools after heavy rain and make a deafening chorus of deep growls. Its call is similar to a deep moan followed by a soft trill. It is believed to be secure and common.
