Red-Eyed Tree Frogs
By Sheri Skelton

1     Would you be surprised if you suddenly saw two bright red eyes looking at you? The red-eyed tree frog flashes its big red eyes when a predator appears. The frog also shows its orange feet and bright blue and yellow sides. Seeing all this color might surprise the predator. The red-eyed tree frog would have enough time to run away. This method of escaping from a predator is known as startle coloration.
2     Red-eyed tree frogs live in tropical rainforests in southern Mexico, Central America, and northern South America. Red-eyed tree frogs are nocturnal carnivores. They look for food at night. They use their long, sticky tongues to grab insects, such as crickets, flies, and moths. They use the suction cups on their toes to climb on trees and leaves.
3     Red-eyed tree frogs have to live near water. That is where they lay their eggs. They lay little bunches of eggs on the undersides of leaves just above the water. When the eggs hatch, little tadpoles drop into the water. The tadpoles develop legs and become frogs.
