Transcript of Tree Frog Adaptations

Tree Frog Adaptations There are different species of tree frogs
around the world, but most
of them live in southern Mexico,
Central America like Costa Rica,
and northern Southern America.
The environment that these tree frogs live
in are in canopy part of the rainforest near rivers, ponds,
and streams. The reason they are found in these
types of wet areas is so that their offspring, the
tadpole, can survive. Tree frogs live in the ltrees on leaves. Habitat The niche of the tree frog is
like any other frog around
the world. It is to eat insects.
By the tree frogs eating insects,
they keep the insect population
down. Camouflage The tree frogs are variations of colors. Th adaptation of camouflaging allows the tree frog to hide in its surroundings so that its predators won't eat it. When the tree frog is sleeping, it hides it's bright colors until a predator startles it and so the tree frog camouflages to confuse the it. Red Eyes The red eyes on the tree frog is an adaptation because of their bright color that scares away it's predator or startle coloration. The tree forgs sleeps all day, which helps blend in without the red eyes showing, but when they open, the brightly red eyes can startle the predator away. Webbed Feet/Hands Webbed feet on a tree frog is one adaptation
that lets the tree frog survive. It's webbed feet
can be various colors like orange. The
webbed feet also lets they lay their eggs in
the waterfrom climbing which is part of survival
for more tree frogs. It also lets the tree frog jump
to other tress or away from predators. Sticky Tounge Sticky Pads There are pads on the ends of the fingers
and toes of tree frogs that help it climb
trees. The pads are sticky and help the
tree frog climb because it is rough and
covered with a sticky section. They will
attach to the tree and leaves. They also
help the tree frog escape from predators
by being able to climb. The tree frog's sticky tounge helps the tree
frog catch it's prey like insects, crickets, flies, etc.
This is one of the most important adaptaions for
a tree frog to survive. The tree frog stick their
long tounge and attaches to the prey. It then
reels in the prey into the tree frog's mouth to eat.
