CIT 2018 Magnificent Life Tree Frog 1oz silver coin. Magnificent Life Tree Frog 1oz silver coin: Red-eyed tree frogs are one of the most charismatic rainforest species and embody the neotropical ecosystem on a multitude of company logos, hotels, nature reserves and more. Surprisingly, however, the ornately colored frog species is a master at disguise and presents a tough challenge to seek out in the wild. During the day the frogs hide their colorful legs, feet and eyes and crouch down to perfectly blend in with the surrounding green foliage. Agalychnis callidryas , known as the red-eyed treefrog , is an arboreal hylid native to Neotropical rainforests where it ranges from Mexico, through Central America, to Colombia. It is sometimes kept in captivity. The scientific name of the red-eyed treefrog, A. Callidryas , comes from Greek words kalos (beautiful) and dryas (a tree or wood nymph). Red-eyed treefrogs inhabit areas near rivers and ponds in rainforests and humid lowlands on the Atlantic slopes from southern Veracruz and northern Oaxaca in Mexico, to central Panama and northern Colombia. They also live on the Pacific slope in southwestern Nicaragua and southwestern Costa Rica to eastern Panama. The optimum temperature for red-eyed treefrogs is 7585 °F (2429 °C) in the daytime, and 6677 °F (1925 °C) at night. Comes with CIT’s Certificate of Authenticity.
