The red-eyed tree frog lives in the rainforests of Costa Rica, home to a vast variety of species. Thousands of animals and plants can only be found in this unique ecosystem. One of the ways to indicate whether an ecosystem is healthy or vulnerable is by certain species such as frogs.
As the number of amphibians has been on a decline because of pollution through pesticides and acid rain as well as predators and deforestation, the fragile habitat of red-eyed tree frog (Agalychnis callidryas) is also under threat by man.
Red-eyed tree frogs are arboreal creatures, that means they live in trees. They hunt for insects at night and are great jumpers. Also, did you know that frogs close their eyes when they eat? That is because they retract their eyes to push the food down. Although this species itself is not endangered yet, every effort has to be made to preserve their home, the rainforests of Costa Rica.
