Sock Contest #2

I spent way to much time on this, and don't really feel like I found satisfactory answers. Allrighty, here goes: I was not sure if you wanted the actual nowadays Greek translation for tree frog, or if you wanted to know what the scientific name (usually in greek) means. I went with scientific, but wasn't sure which one, so here is what I did:
1. Order: Anura (meaning without tail), Family: Hylidae - (dae-new world, hyla-tree frog) Genus: Hyla - (Tree Frog)
2. One of the many ways: eggs are usually deposited on leaves above ponds, where mothers keep them wet by urinating on them. When they hatch, they fall into the water below.
3. Depending on the variety tree frog sizes range from 1/2 inch to 5 inches.
