Carly's Contest #2 Entry

Totally forgot and nearly threw away the questions, but here are my answers :)

1. While I couldn't find exactly 'tree frog' in Greek, tree frogs are in the Family 'Hylidae' and Species 'Arborea'. Hyla comes from the Greek 'to bark' referring to the frogs mating calls. The Arborea is a Latin origin :)

2. Most tree frogs lay their eggs in the water. Some species lay eggs on branches near the water and still others carry the eggs on their backs.

3. A common US tree frog is 2-2.5 inches, however different species outside North America can grow to 4 inches or larger.
