Flying tree frogs are a group of tree frog that has developed the ability to glide between trees in the tropical forests of Asia, Africa, and Central and South America. There are over 3000 species of frog that have evolved this ability, found in two families: Hylidae and Rhacophoridae.
- Scientific Name: Genus Rhacophorus, Ecnomiohyla & Polypedates
- Characteristics: The ability to glide actually developed independently among the tree frog genera that share this feature. This particular hand-painted flying tree frog figure is posed in mid glide, as if sailing from one tree to another. It’s packed with accurate detail from its webbed hands and feet to its bumpy underside.
- Size and Color: This frog figurine measures about 8 inches long and 4 inches wide, making it about the size of a standard pair of scissors. Flying tree frogs are highly variable in coloration, but this figure features the bright green above and yellow below colors seen on many of the species, with black accents in the webbing and golden eyes.
