The Milk Frog

The Amazon milk frog, or the Mission golden-eyed tree frog, is in my opinion one of the cutest out there. The colours are beautiful, with white, light grey, and browns mixed together with a bit of stunning blue. 

These frogs are an arboreal species found in the Amazon rainforest and can reach a size of around 4 inches. Their name milk frog comes from the milky-like substance that they secrete when frightened. 

They have been a relatively popular pet choice, being easy to care for, despite needing quite a bit of space and humidity. Although they have not been widely available in the UK for too long.
