Vietnamese Mossy Frog
Photograph - Photography
The common name of the mossy frog arises from the fact that its skin is a mottled green and brown that resembles moss growing on rock, and forms an effective form of camouflage. They have large sticky pads on their toes and a soft underbelly. As with most Tree Frogs, the females will grow larger than the males and can reach sizes of 7–8 cm (3 inches). This species will curl into a ball when frightened, and play dead. The mossy frog is insectivorous and eats crickets, locusts, cockroaches, wax worms, moths and flies.
