As well as changing their colour to blend in with their surroundings, black-eyed tree frogs have a special skin pigment, which allows them to reflect UV light at the same rate as the leaves around them. This makes them even trickier to spot!
Due to the same skin pigment, these frogs are able to sit on the tops of the leaves without getting too hot or getting burnt by the sun. It’s as if they have factor 50 sun lotion built in.
During the breeding season, females deposit fertilised eggs on vegetation, which overhangs water. When the tadpoles hatch out, they fall into the ponds below, where they complete their development into adults.
