Red Eyed Tree Frogs

Hi! Maya here, today I am gonna tell you about Red Eyed Tree Frogs. The Scientific name for the Red Eyed Tree Frog is Agalychnis callidryas. Agalychnis callidryas comes from the Greek words that means "beautiful tree nymph." They have bold red eyes with vertically narrowed noses, a vibrant green body with yellow and blue striped sides, and orange toes. Red Eyed Tree Frogs are not poisonous and rely on camouflage to protect themselves. During the day, they remain motionless, cover their blue sides with their back legs, tuck their bright feet under their belly, and shut their red eyes to camoflouge with the leaves and grass around them. Red Eyed Tree Frogs are actually nocturnal. Tree frogs, like all frogs, are amphibians. Tree frogs have suction disks on their fingers and toes that help them stick to leaves. Cool right? Red Eyed Tree Frogs walk and climb rather than hopping. They do this because they're adapted to living in trees rather than on ground. They are carnivores and mainly eat insects. Hope you enjoyed this!
