Chinese Gliding Frog

These are Chinese gliding frogs.  They live in China, Vietnam, Laos, and Burma (also called Myanmar).  They eat insects and live in montane forests, which are forests on the sides of mountains.

Chinese gliding frogs are very special.  They can jump and glide through the air a long way.  They can do this because they have webbing between their toes that acts like a wing.  They can even do turns in midair by moving their legs around.  When they land, their sticky toes will grab onto a branch or a leaf.

The frog in this picture was stuck to the glass.  You can see his webbed and sticky toes.  Don’t forget that you can click any picture on my website to make it bigger.

We took these pictures last week at the Milwaukee Public Museum.
