Among the brightly colored 175 species of tree frogs, only three represent a threat to humans, others mimic toxicity by their appearance, although they are not poisonous.
The size of the dangerous tree frog reaches 2-5 cm, and the female is larger than the male.
Wood frogs climb trees through rounded endings on paws resembling suckers. Making circular movements with their limbs, they move fairly easily over the sheer plane of the tree trunk.
Poisonous woodpeckers prefer to live alone, carefully guarding the boundaries of their territory, and converge only during the mating season after reaching the age of 2 years.
Its bright coloring tree frogs acquire with age, the frogs always have an ordinary-looking brown color.
The frog does not produce poison – it adsorbs the toxins of small insects. Poisonous secretions appear on the skin of the amphibian at the moment of danger and are caused by a specific “diet”, which includes termites, ants, flies, spiders and beetles. Wood frogs, grown in captivity, far from their natural habitat and deprived of the usual food, are absolutely harmless.
Frogs-drevolazy lead both day and night life, climb on the ground and trees, when hunting use a long sticky tongue.
The life cycle of frogs is 5-7 years, in captivity – 10-15 years.
