Transcript of The Red Eyed Tree Frog

The red-eyed tree frog Being green helps the red-eyed tree frog blending with tree leaves. This keeps it hidden from both insects it eats and the predators that want to eat it. Red-eyed tree frogs are nocturnal or active in the night and during the day they rest. When one of these tree frogs sits still on a green leaf, legs tucked in and eyes shut, it is practically invisble. A female red-eyed tree frog has laid a batch of embryos (eggs) on a leaf. She chose the spot carefully - the leaf hangs over a pon. When the eggs are ready to hatch , which happens at the same time in one batch of eggs, the tadpoles inside start swirling aroun vigorously. The activity breaks each egg open , releasing the little tadpoles. All the tadpoles wash down the in a little stream of moisture from the hatching eggs and - plop!- polp! - plop!- they land in the pond below. feeding on tiny little insects the tadpoles live in the water they fell into until they metamorphose or develop, into little brownish green froglets. At this point they leave the water and climb up into nearby trees to live as tree frogs.
