The Foam-Nest Tree Frog (Chiromantis xerampelina), also called White Frog or Gray Frog is a frog that lives in the tropical rainforests of Africa. Its upper body is a brownish color, tinged rust, and it has small dark spots around its head and pelvis. The frog lives in trees, and builds its nest on branches overhanging water. It is called the Foam-Nest Tree Frog because it’s nest consists of air bubbles wrapped in a leaf. When it’s larvae hatch, they fall into the water below, where they grow from tadpoles into frogs. It absorbs moisture off hands when touched. It also changes color at night in order to be camouflaged in it’s nest.
