The 8th in our new challenge layout catering for all aspects of nature for us nature lovers.
As you can see the title will start with the category which will make it easier for me when choosing what challenge to do next, I can see the challenges I have already run in this category.
For this challenge please add your images of TREE FROGS.
This is a large group of frogs, some of which are not tree frogs, inhabiting terrestrial or semi aquatic lifestyles, however for this challenge can we just see Tree Frogs.
> Hylidae is a wide-ranging family of frogs commonly referred to as “tree frogs”.
> Most hylids show adaptations suitable for an arboreal lifestyle, including forward-facing eyes providing binocular vision, and adhesive pads on the fingers and toes.
> Hylids lay their eggs in a range of different locations, depending on species. Many use ponds, or puddles that collect in the holes of their trees, while others use bromeliads or other water-holding plants. Other species lay their eggs on the leaves of vegetation overhanging water, allowing the tadpoles to drop into the pond when they hatch.
A few species use fast-flowing streams, attaching the eggs firmly to the substrate. The tadpoles of these species have suckers enabling them to hold onto rocks after they hatch. Another unusual adaptation is found in some South American hylids, which brood the eggs on the back of the female.
> The European treecat frog, Hyla arborea, is common in the middle and south of Europe, and range into Asia and North Africa. The species become very noisy on the approach of rain.
