These fascinating amphibians are native to the Amazon Rainforest in South America, also known as Amazon milk frogs. And you thought that was all? They are also known as golden-eyed frogs due to their golden iris, blue-milk frogs due to the striking blue colors of their mouth and feet, and panda frogs due to their black and white coloration as juveniles.
The milk frog typically dwells close to still water in the canopy of the rainforest. The frogs rarely make it down to the forest floor and prefer to remain in the trees. Mission golden-eyed tree frogs eat anything they can catch and swallow, including insects, like most other frogs. The deadly milky fluid that it secretes when under stress is where the “milk” in its common name originates from.
