Fantastic Summer Weather (For Us Frogs)

By achieverswales
Thanks once again for great comments and votes yesterday, today an Amazon Milk Frog, from the session with Angi, below some info.

The Amazon Milk Frog (Trachycephalus resinifictrix) is a large species of arboreal frog native to the Amazon Rainforest in South America. It is sometimes referred to as the blue milk frog. It was first discovered along the Maracană River in Brazil.

Amazon milk frogs are fairly large frogs, reaching sizes of 2.5 to 4 inches in length. Adult frogs are light grey in color with brown or black banding, while juveniles will exhibit stronger contrasts. As Amazon Milk Tree Frogs age their skin will develop a slightly bumpy texture.

The "milk" in the name comes from the milky colored fluid these frogs excrete when stressed.

Amazon milk frogs inhabit humid rainforest regions. They often inhabit vegetation which extends over permanent, slow moving water sources.

Like most other species of frog, Amazon milk frogs are insectivorous. They will consume almost any type of small arthropod they can overpower and swallow.
In captivity

Trachycephalus resinifictrix is commonly found in captivity. They are relatively easy to care for, but require a significant amount of space, humidity (this can be achieved via a water area and misting once or twice daily) and regular cage maintenance to ensure a clean healthy environment.
