Their appearance helps them blend into their habitat. Nocturnal animals, Solomon Islands leaf frogs hunt for insects at night. Females lay eggs in shallow nests dug into the ground.
Interesting Fact 1
Solomon Islands leaf frogs hatch from eggs as fully developed frogs, skipping the tadpole phase common in most frogs.
Interesting Fact 2
These frogs have a protruding brow over each eye, earning them the nickname “Solomon Islands eyelash frog.”
