[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Giant Waxy Tree Frog is found in the Rain Forests of Brazil, Colombia, Bolivia, Peru, and Guianas. This nocturnal amphibian walks or runs, rather than jumping, hand over hand through branches.

Their bodies are bright green, with cream spots bordered in black along their sides, and a gray throat, chest and underside of legs. 'Waxy' refers to lipid secretions they spread over their bodies to prevent water loss. Also known as Monkey Tree Frog - 'monkey' refers to the opposable thumb they use to better grasp the branches they live among.
