Wallace’s Flying Frog


Common name : Parachute frogs

Scientific name : Rhacophorus nigropalmatus

Family : Rhacophoridae

Native to : Malaysia and Borneo

Interesting fact : Flying frogs can glide up to a distance of 50 feet.

Conservation status : Least Concern

Skin folds between limbs and extensively webbed feet help the Wallace’s flying frog glide from treetops. Sticky toe pads on these bright green frogs aid in climbing their tree homes and they come down only to breed. High up on the trees of tropical rainforests they catch insects for food. Eggs are laid in a foamy liquid to be fertilized by male spermatophores.
