Yellow Spotted Climbing Toad

Rentapia hosii

The largest arboreal (tree-living) toad in the world, these toads spend much of their days sleeping in trees. At night, they use long, muscular legs and toes to climb down to the forest floor and search for insects. Like all toads, they lay eggs, but this species requires moving water for their tadpoles to survive.
