Rohde's frog, Rohde's leaf frog, or Marten's leaf frog (Pithecopus rohdei) is a frog that lives in southern Brazil, not high in the hills. People have seen it as high as 1000 meters above sea level.[3][1]

This frog is not in danger of dying out. Scientists say this is because it can live in different kinds of places.[2]

This frog lays its eggs on leaves hanging over streams. When the eggs hatch, the tadpoles fall into the stream.[2]
