INFORMATION ABOUT RED-EYED TREE FROG

The Red-eyed Tree-Frog is a colorful and photogenic species of tree frog found in Neotropical rainforests north to southern Mexico, throughout much of Central America, and south to northwestern Colombia. Despite its bright colors, the species relies on camouflage to protect itself, closing its eyes and tucking its legs to cover its bright side coloration during the day. Its bright red eyes are used to startle potential predators.
