Males frogs call on second female frogs to lay eggs that will feed the recently hatched tadpoles. Adults' diet consists of insects and other small invertebrates.
These frogs spend their lives living in trees and other plants.
1. They are able to carry up to 14x their body weight.
2. Mission Golden-eyed Tree Frogs have special suction cups on their toes to help them climb plants.
3. They are also known as "milk frogs" because of the milky white substance that comes out of their skin for protection.
