The Red-eyed tree frog (Agalychnis callidryas) is a species of tree frogs. Red-eyed tree frogs spend most of their time sleeping on leaves. Their skin is green and they can camouflage with the leaves. They are active at night. They like to eat small insects. Tree frogs lay their eggs in a jelly like egg. The mothers will stay near them and help them fight any hungry animals that want to eat them. They will become a tadpole in one or two weeks. They will drop from the leaf and into the lake which is below the leaf. During their tadpole stage, they can change their color like a chameleon.
