Mossy Frog

The Mossy Frog, also known as the Vietnamese Mossy Frog, gets its common name from its camouflaged appearance. The mottled green and brown skin coloration combined with the skin’s wart-like texture causes this frog to blend into the moss-covered rocks in its steep, mountainous rainforest habit. It is protected in Surinam and in international trade. There is an active captive breeding program conducted by organizations in the U.S. and Surinam.
