Our class has pet frogs for Science. We think they are Brown Tree Frogs, which are very common in Tasmania. We are learning about waterways inTasmania and the animals that live in them.
We have been feeding them boiled lettuce frozen into ice cubes when they were tadpoles and fruit-flies and grubs (they were a failure) when they turned into frogs.
They live in a fish tank with leaves, sticks, stones and water. We are going to release them into our school frog pond soon. The image is from the DPIPWE site at http://www.dpipwe.tas.gov.au/inter.nsf/WebPages/SJON-5447WG?open If you go to this site you can click on a link and hear the frog’s call.
