Poison Dart Frog and Red-Eye Tree Frog Christopher J. and Blue C.

2 There are five different groups of animals with vertebrates
Mammals Reptiles Fish Amphibians Birds

3 The Poison Dart Frog and Red-Eye Tree Frog are both amphibians.

4 Here are some characteristics of most amphibians….
They are cold-blooded. They have moist, smooth skin without scales. Amphibians lay eggs in water or lay the eggs under dry ground. They started their lives breathing through gills, but as an adult use lungs for breathing. Amphibians begin their life cycle in the water, and then later move to land.

5 Red-Eyed Tree Frog Red-Eyed Tree Frogs are named for their large bulging eyes. These eyes help the frog see food better. They have long, powerful jumping legs, suction cups on the toes, and a very short backbone.

6 Red-Eyed Tree Frog Red-eyed tree frogs are nocturnal.
That means they’re most active at night. They rest on the undersides of large leaves during the day to keep cool and to protect themselves from predators. Bats, snakes, and birds are some animals that like to eat the red-eyed tree frog. These little frogs live in rainforests in Central America and northern South America.

7 Red-Eyed Tree Frog The red-eyed Tree frog is a meat-eater or carnivore. It eats mostly insects. He catches the bugs, spiders, and beetles with its long, sticky tongue. It also eats other small invertebrates and sometimes will even eat other small frogs!

8 Red-Eyed Tree Frog A Red Eyed Tree Frog will change it's skin color to blend in with it's surroundings. These pictures show how he changes from dark to light to camouflage himself from predators.

9 Red-Eyed Tree Frog Their body is bright green and their sides are blue with pale yellow stripes. The feet are red and orange the upper legs are blue. The color helps it blend in with the beautiful flowers of the Rain Forest. Females are about 3 inches long. They are larger than males. Males areabout 2 inches long.

10 Red-Eyed Tree frogs spend their lives near water because they must return to the water to lay their eggs. Adult males make a loud croaking sound to let other frogs know to “keep out”. They use their croak to attract females. Female Red-Eye Tree Frogs lay eggs on the undersides of leaves. The leaves protects the eggs.

11 Poison Dart Frog The bright color of the Poison Dart Frog warns the
Predators that they’re poisonous. Poison Dart Frog When they hatch into tadpoles, they breathe with gills and swim with their tail. Later they grow lungs and live on the land.

12 The Poison Dart Frog is also called a Poison
The Poison Dart Frog lives in the tropical rainforest of South and Central America. Their diet is insects and bugs. They like to eat ants, termites, flies, small beetles, and spiders. Their eye sight helps them to see their prey and their quick tongue helps them “slurp” him up. The Poison Dart Frog is also called a Poison Arrow Frog.

13 Poison Dart Frog These frogs are often called poison arrow frogs or poison dart frogs. This is because they used to use their poison on the tips of arrows and blowdarts.

14 Poison Dart Frog This frog likes to stay on the floor of the rain forests and in moist and shady places. It can't be eaten by many other animals, but it eats almost any insect around it.

15 Poison Dart Frog One of the Poison Arrow Frog's adaptations to the rain forest is that it is very small. Most Poison Dart Frogs are only ½ inch long. It also has special colors that help it camouflage itself in the rain forests. This helps it not to be eaten by predators.
