How Does A Tree Frog Get Its
They have specially designed tongues for the
specific type of food they eat.
Unlike humans the frog’s tongue is attached at
the front of the mouth.
This helps the frogs fling their tongues out of
their mouths much easier.
The tip of the tongue is also sticky, this helps
the frog latch onto its prey and hold on to it.
How Did The Tree Frog Become
 In 1989, amphibians’ numbers were going down
really fast all over the world, and it wasn’t just in
areas crowded with people.
 Different species face different threats. The tree
frogs’ habitat is becoming destroyed.
 They are facing many deadly diseases.
 Pollution is also damaging things, plus too much
climate change.
What Steps
Are Being
Taken In Order
To Save The
Tree Frog
Some of the things scientists
are doing to help them from
becoming extinct are breeding
them in zoos, and keeping the
frogs away from fish to keep
them safe.
The tree frogs’ habitat is also
being protected by weeding
their habitat, and making sure
that there are not many forest
What Adaptations Help It Survive?
Tree Frogs
 The frog’s red eyes help it
during day time because it
is a nocturnal animal, and
when a predator tries to eat
it, the tree frog’s bright eyes
immediately pop open.
 Since they are so bright,
they startle the predator
and it makes it pause for a

away for safety.

that allows it to absorb
moisture from air, and
breathe in oxygen.
