Waxy Tree Frogs measure up to 8 cms (3.1 inches) in length. They are green in colour and their skin has a waxy coating that prevents them from drying out. They have long legs and can live for up to 8 years. They are active during the night and males call at these times.
Waxy Tree Frogs are found on savanna, shrub land and forested areas of central South America. They are inhabit trees and vegetation near temporary freshwater ponds and lagoons.
Waxy Tree Frogs feed upon insects.
Waxy Tree Frogs make a coarse, leaf nest in which they lay their eggs. The nest hangs over water and when the eggs hatch, the tadpoles drop into the water where they develop into frogs.
