Did this frog even wake up?


I am trying to count how many things this frog can do simultaneously including sleep. The spectacular Fringed leaf frog | Cruziohyla craspedopus are canopy frogs from the Amazon, which rarely (if ever) even come down from the tree tops. They will make their public debut in our new exhibit coming mid-January.

I love how she grasps the cricket in her hand and stuffs it in her mouth ... a behavior this species shares with the other Cruziohylacalcarifer.
