Red-eyed Tree Frog
Scientific Name
Agalychnis callidryas
Central America
Conservation Status
Least Concern

Suction Cups

This colorful frog has tiny suction cup-like appendages on its toes, which allows it to attach to the undersides of leaves, branches and tree trunks in the rainforests in its habitats.


This nocturnal carnivore feeds primarily at night on insects, including: grasshoppers, flies, moths and crickets. The Red-Eyed Tree Frog eats anything it can fit in its mouth, even smaller frogs.

Environmental Indicators

Like most amphibians, this frog species relies heavily upon a healthy ecosystem. When the quality of life in the forest and waterways suffers, so do amphibians. Frogs and other amphibians can be environmental indicators of a system. If frogs, salamanders and toads are not healthy, the environment they live in is not healthy.
