Red-eyed tree frogs (Agalychnis callidryas) mating on a plant stem. During mating the smaller male clings to the back of the female, and fertilises her eggs as they are laid. The red-eyed tree frog is found in the tropical rainforests of central America. As its name implies, it lives in trees and other vegetation. Each toe ends with a sucker, which is used to grasp leaves and stems. It is primarily nocturnal, and feeds mainly on insects such as moths, grasshoppers and flies. It has been known to eat smaller frogs. It can reach a length of around seven centimetres. Its bold colouration has made this frog popular in the pet trade.
