Tree frogs are a group of over 800 species of small frogs that spend most of their life on trees. They are easily identified by their disc-shaped toes for suction and grip on trees. Toe pads also aid in climbing. These small frogs come in a variety of colours. Insects, worms and spiders make up their meal. While most tree frogs live on trees, some may live in ponds and lakes. Typical life span of tree frogs varies with the species ranging from 5 to 15 years.
