Monkey and Leaf Frogs of the sub-family Phyllomedusinae; one of the most beautiful and interesting groups of frogs

Image
The Leaf Frogs (genera: Agalychnis and Cruziohyla) are so named from their incredible coloration and camouflage (sometimes bordering mimicry) as well as their reproductive behavior of laying eggs on leaves above water. Monkey Frogs (genus: Phyllomedusa typically have reduced webbing on the hands and feet and rather than jumping, seem to prefer climbing, with slow deliberate movements. You can find frogs of all these genera on exhibit in the Fuqua Conservatory lobby
