Asian treefrogs live in southeastern Asia, the southern half of Africa, and Madagascar. In southeastern Asia, species live in southern India, Sri Lanka, central and southern China, Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Indonesia. In Africa, they live in a stretch of land across the center of the continent from about the Ivory Coast in the west to Somalia in the east, and then down the eastern side.


People rarely see most of the species in this family, which live in forests and other areas away from human activity. Some of the Asian treefrogs, like the Kinugasa flying frog, often turn up in gardens where people notice them. A few species, including the beautifully colored mantellas, are popular in the pet trade.
