Kids' Inquiry of Diverse Species

tree frogs


This family of over 700 species can be found worldwide. As their name suggests, most tree frogs are arboreal (live in trees). At the end of each claw-shaped toe is a pad that helps them stick on branches. Spring peepers are a common North American species. The red-eyed tree frog found in Central America is also a member of this family..
