Red-eyed tree frogs are very small. The mucus made in pads on their toes helps them stick to leaves and walk on branches.

Red-eyed tree frogs are brown when they hatch. As tadpoles, the frogs have tails to help them swim. Over time, the tadpoles grow legs. They lose their tails. They turn green. As adult frogs, they can live both on land and in the water. But they prefer to live in the trees.
