Red-eyed tree Frog
Rainforests near rivers and ponds.
Crickets, moths, flies and other insects.
Red-eyed tree frogs spend most of their time in trees and have sticky pads on their toes to help them move and jump about. They are not poisonous and rely on camouflage to protect themselves.
After mating, the female lays a clutch of eggs on a leaf above a pond or large puddle. The small tadpoles hatch after several days and fall into the water below. They stay in the water for a couple of months while they metamorphose into frogs. Dragonflies, fish and water beetles prey on the tadpoles.
