Golden Eyed Tree Frog
Mission Golden-eyed Tree Frog (Trachycephalus resinifictrix)

Also known as the blue or Amazon milk frog, the mission golden-eyed tree frog is a large species of tree frog native to the Amazon Rainforest in South America. This species gets the name ‘milk frog’ because when stressed the frog will excrete a milky fluid from its pores. The milk frog like other tree frog frequents humid rainforests, usually in vegetation or near moving water. Like most frogs the milk frogs diet consists of insects and small arthropods. They have also been introduced into the pet trade as they are relatively easy to care for.
