African Treefrogs: Hyperoliidae


Many species in this family live in often dry and hot grassy fields or in areas that are humid and covered in thick bushes and trees. In addition, some live in rainforests, and others tend to make their homes in land that is currently being farmed or in abandoned and overgrown farmland. Some of the African treefrogs live high in mountains, but many others do not. Many species are arboreal (ar-BOR-ee-ul), which means that they live above the ground in trees. Other species stay on the ground, and some are able to dig beneath it.
