Amero-Australian Treefrogs: Hylidae

Amero-australian Treefrogs And People

Some local people in tropical areas eat the larger Amero-Australian treefrogs, including the very large tadpoles that are seen in some species. Some treefrogs, however, are not safe to eat. The giant waxy monkey treefrog, for instance, oozes a very powerful poison from its skin that can cause a person to become extremely sick or to die.

Many species of treefrogs can be found in the pet trade. The red-eyed treefrog with its green back, blue-and-white sides, orange toes, and large, red eyes is especially common.
