Waxy Tree Frog
The waxy tree frog, sometimes called the monkey frog for its long legs, is native to central South America. It's a popular aquarium inhabitant, which measures about 8 cms (3 inches) in length, feeds upon insects, and lives for about eight years. In the wild, female waxys lay their eggs in a coarse nest of tree leaves overhanging water. When the eggs hatch, the tadpoles drop into the water to dwell until they are frogs.
