The tiger-leg monkey frog (Phyllomedusa tomopterna) is an attractive and interesting species native to the Amazon Rainforest.

These amphibians nocturnal and sleep all day long, but at night they wake up and spend their time searching for food, and vocalizing if male.

In many ways, their behavior and care is similar to the more familiar Red-eyed tree frog (Agalychnis callidryas).

Males grow to between 1.5 and 2.0 inches, while large females may reach nearly 2.4 inches in length.
