Amazon Milk Frog

This is an Amazon milk frog.  It lives in South America in the rain forest of Amazon.  It lives in the tree branches of the rain forest.  I think it is called a milk frog because it looks like chocolate milk and white milk.  It eats insects, just like most other frogs.  It is about 4 inches long.  This frog breeds high in the trees.  The female lays 2,000 to 3,000 eggs in tree holes filled with water, and the tadpoles swim around in the tree hole until they grow legs and can climb out.

We saw this frog at the Frogs exhibit at the Milwaukee Public Museum.  If you want to see these frogs, the Frogs exhibit is open until January 2, 2011.
