Vietnamese Mossy Frog

Size: Up to 3.5 inches
Habitat/Range: Mountainous rainforests of northern Vietnam


Frog Alley in KidZone (Zone C) is also home to the texturized and fascinating Vietnamese mossy frogs! The mossy frog's red, green and black coloration along with uneven, bumpy texture enables it to blend in among mosses and lichens within its habitat. When frightened the mossy frog will fold into a ball and play dead. These frogs have sticky discs at the end of each toe, making them skillful tree climbers. As with most tree frogs, the females will grow larger than the males and can reach sizes 3 inches or more.
