The common name of the mossy frog arises from the fact that its skin is a mottled green and brown that resembles moss growing on rock, and forms an effective form of camouflage.

As with most Tree Frogs, the females will grow larger than the males but unlike every other frog this species will curl into a ball when frightened, and play dead!

Glass frogs have similarities to tree frogs to the naked eye. During the day, these frogs camouflage themselves under leaves but above water and have a green semi-translucent color with yellow translucent hands.

The Argentine Horned Frog (also known as the wide-mouthed Frog or Pacman frog) is the most common species of Horned Frog.

A voracious eater, it will attempt to swallow anything that moves close to its wide mouth, such as insects, and rodents, lizards and other frogs, even if it suffocates its self in the process!

/The Poison Dart Frog/

The poison arrow frog is one of the most well-known of the frog species. They often have very brightly coloured bodies to indicate their toxic secretions which are so strong they can kill a monkey when applied to a blow dart in less than a 40 seconds.

Dendropsophus sarayacuensis is a species of frog in the Hylidae family. It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, freshwater marshes, and intermittent freshwater marshes.

It is sometimes referred to as the blue milk frog and was first discovered along the Maracanã River in Brazil.

/The Purple Frog/

Only officially discovered in 2003, Nasikabatrachus sahyadrensis is an Indian frog so unusual that it seems to have taken a completely different evolutionary route from most other Anura, much like the differences between the marsupials of Australia and placental mammals of other continents.

Spending most of the year underground, the purple frog feeds on subterranean insects until it emerges for a massive mating frenzy during the brief seasonal monsoon.

/Turtle Frog/

The only species in its unique genus, Australia’s Myobatrachus gouldii is even more divergent than the purple frog, having adapted to a mole-like existence of tunneling underground and breaking into termite nests, poking their comically small heads into the bug’s burrows and slurping them up.

Rather than reproducing in water like a majority of other Anura, turtle frogs breed in their burrows and young skip past the tadpole phase, remaining in their eggs until they’ve formed into pin-headed burrowers themselves.
