Hylidae – Tree frogs

Despite they name, this family include a diversity of frog species, many of which are terrestrial or semiaquatic

Not all members of this large family of amphibians dwell in trees. Instead, the trait that unifies them is the toe pads on their feet, which aid in climbing. These toe pads are coated in a thin mucus that sticks to surfaces through wet adhesion, similar to how damp tissue paper adheres to the glass.

Unlike their terrestrial relatives, tree frogs have vibrant colors that make them popular. Flies, ants, crickets, beetles, moths, and other tiny invertebrates form the menu of adult tree frogs. The majority of them, however, are herbivores as tadpoles.
