Tree Frog Contest #2

Here are my answers:

1: The Red-eyed Tree Frog is Agalychnis Callidryas, which is loosely translated from the Greek as "beautiful tree nymph" (at least Callidryas is translated as such).

2: Red-eyed Tree Frogs lay eggs on the underside of leaves (that are near water), so that once the eggs hatch, the tadpoles fall into the water below.

3: Red-eyed Tree Frogs are usually 2-3 inches in length.

This was a lot harder than I thought it would be! Since I found so many different varieties of tree frog, not all the answers coincided, so I chose answers based only on the Red-eyed Tree Frog, since that was the one our colorway and images on the contest/shipment showed.

Thanks, Jen, for another great club shipment and fun contest questions!
