Red Eyed Tree Frog

The Red Eye Tree Frog is from the rainforest area of Central and South America. They have become the symbol used to save the rainforest. They are nocturnal... meaning... they sleep during the day, and awake at night. One of their favorite meals are crickets. Our tree frogs are housed in a glass habitat with special froggy dirt, live plants (free from insecticides), spanish moss and water. We mist their area at least once a day with fresh water. You shouldn't play with these frogs as their skin is very sensitive.

Because they sleep at night, you have to stay up pretty late to get a picture of these guys playing... and eating. Check out our Tree Frog Wallpaper page.

Waking up... they do a lot of yawning. They take their hands and rub them several times over their eyes... then they are off to catch dinner! Click to see larger picture.

Photo just before he grabbed his dinner... cricket crunch!
After eating... he used his hands to wipe his mouth... too cute! Actually, what he is doing is using his hands to push his food into his mouth.

A Red Eyed Tree Frog will change it's skin color to blend in with it's surroundings.
When we first turn on the light, the frog is dark... the more we leave the light on...
the lighter green the frog becomes... viola... camouflage.

The Red Eyed Tree frog has a third eye lid called a nictitating membrane. The purpose of this membrane is to shield the frog's sensitive eyes from various dangers. This eye lid does not completely restrict it's vision.
