SUPER SURPRISE #42
We’re hopping off to the rainforests of Madagascar to find today’s animal! They’re small and green, so everyone keep your eyes peeled and let’s head off on today’s adventure!
MEET THE GREEN MANTELLA!
Diet: Carnivore: insects, invertebrates
Length/Weight: ¾-1 ¼ “
Conservation Status: Endangered
- Green Mantellas are small yellow or pale green frogs with black on their sides.
- They are diurnal (active during the night).
- Green mantellas have adhesive disks on their toes.
- They secrete toxins, similar to poison dart frogs.
- Male green mantellas use a series of clicks to attract females!
These tiny frogs are gorgeous! They are losing their rainforest homes though, remember you may not think that recycling cans or paper helps, but it makes a big impact! So keep up the good work!
