White's Tree Frog

The skin of the White's tree frog has a waxy cuticle which helps control moisture loss. During the dry season it may become dormant. It protects itself from desiccation under a layer of shed skin and mucus.

This frog has large toe pads with sticky secretions that help it cling to smooth surfaces, even upside down.
