The Red-eyed Tree Frog is a nocturnal frog with spectacularly bright colors. Its body is green and white, and its toes are red, as are its eyes. This frog lives in trees and rarely ascends to the forest floor.


The Red-eyes Tree Frog is found in humid forest, both at the Pacific and the Caribbean side of Nicaragua. It sleeps during the day, which makes it hard to spot during daytime.
