Darwin’s frog

This frog is found in the forests of Argentina and Chile, it is considered to be as a native species there. Its name is derived from Charles Darwin who discovered the frog in his “Voyage of the Beagle”.

The frogs can be found in beech-tree fields or forests in South America and they also can live in some swamps or low streams.

Its appearance makes the Darwin’s frog to look like a leaf, so often when the frog feels endangered it remains still on the ground like a leaf until the danger is gone. This way the frog protects itself from the predators.
