Diet

Milk frogs enjoy feasting on crickets but also enjoy cockroaches, house flies, spiders and generally any prey they can fit in their mouth!

Fun fact

Adult Milk frogs shed their skin around once a week. They use their legs to peel off the old layer and then eat it!

Habitat

Found in the tropical rainforests of South America, Milk frogs live in the rainforest canopy, usually near slow moving water. They base themselves in the trees and rarely descend to the ground.

Amazon Milk frogs are a light grey in colour with band patterning of black or brown. As they get older, their skin can become less intense in colour and often become bumpy to the touch. As one of the largest frogs in South America, they range from 2.5 - 4 inches in size with females being larger than the males. They have large toe pads that make them excellent climbers - perfect for their rainforest environment - and they can hold up to 14 times their own body weight. Mating season runs from Nov - May with females being able to produce around 2500 eggs. Fertilised eggs are laid in the cavities of trees filled with water and hatch within 1 day. The life span of a Milk frog is around 8 - 10 years.
