Amphibians on Display

Lemur Leaf Frogs of Costa Rica

This display may appear empty, but sleeping Lemur Frogs (Agalychnis lemur) are camouflaged on the undersides of the leaves. These critically endangered amphibians have special relationships with plants throughout their lives. They sleep beneath leaves, travel across vines, find food drawn to plants and hang their eggs on leaves extending over water. When the tadpoles hatch, they fall down into the water.
