They are found in Central and South America.
They live in the trees near water in tropical rainforests.
They are mostly green with blue sides with yellow stripes, reddish feet and large red eyes. They hold onto the trees with tiny suction cups on their toes. They have long legs for jumping.
They are active at night (nocturnal).
They eat insects and small water animals, including other frogs.
Red Eyed Tree Frogs are eaten by snakes and large birds.
The females lay their eggs on the bottom of leaves that hang over the water. When they hatch, the baby tadpoles fall into the water where they grow and change over time into adult frogs.
