The red-skirted tree frog (Dendropsophus rhodopeplus) is a frog that lives in Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and Brazil. Scientists have seen it as high as 1200 meters above sea level.[3][1]

This frog is yellow and dark red in color. The adult male frog is 15.34 to 25.5 mm long from nose to rear end and the adult female frog is 26.8 to 27.7 mm long. It lays eggs whenever the weather is good for laying eggs.[1]
