Hylidae - Tree Frogs

Tree frogs have slender bodies and legs, long toes, and sticky toe pads that help them climb in trees and cling to branches and leaves. Tree frogs have extra cartilage between the last two bones of each toe that makes their toes more flexible! There are around 862 species of tree frogs found around the world.
