Amazon Milk Frog

Trachycephalus resinifictrix

The Amazon milk frog spends its entire life cycle in the tropical rainforest canopy. During breeding season, males stake out water-filled tree holes and call for mates. About 2,000 eggs are laid in the water as a result of a successful mating, which hatch into tadpoles by the next day.
