THELODERMA CORTICALE The Mossy Frog or Tonkin Bug-eyed Frog (Theloderma corticale), is a species of frog in the Rhacophoridae family. It is found in Northern Vietnam and possibly China. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montanes, freshwater marshes, intermittent freshwater marches, and rocky areas. It is a semi-aquatic, semi-arboreal species that is threatened by habitat loss. The common name of the mossy frog arises from the fact that its skin is a mottled green and brown that resembles moss growing on rock, and forms an effective form of camouflage. They have large sticky pads on their toes and a soft underbelly. As with most Tree Frogs, the females will grow larger than the males and can reach sizes of 7-8cm (3 inches). This species will curl into a ball when frightened, and play dead. Mossy frog camouflaged against a mossy background in the New England Aquarium. The mossy frog is insectivorous and eats crickets, locusts, cockroaches, waxworms, moths and flies. Coins for investors and collectors.
