Tree frog

Tree frogs are frogs of the family Hylidae.

There is large variation within the tree frogs.

Many of the arboreal frogs are green in colour, whereas the terrestrial and aquatic species are duller.

They mostly feed on insects, however some of the larger species can feed on small vertebrates.

Many of the tree frogs are not arboreal and can be terrestrial or aquatic.

The species within the genus Cyclorana are burrowing frogs, sometimes spending many years underground.
