Where do you find frogs that live in trees?

Tree frogs - are found in Europe, North and South America, New Guinea, North Africa, and warm parts of Asia. They have small sticky discs on the top of their fingers and toes which help them cling to the branches of trees. The best known European tree frog is less than two inches long. Its Latin name is Hyla arborea. Its colour is usually bright green. But tree frogs can change colour even as you watch them. They can become yellow, brown or black. In North America there are two main types of tree frog. One is called the spring peeper. It has a shrill piping voice. the other one is known as Hyla versicolor. Versicolor is a Latin word meaning "various colours". This frog can be grey, green or brown. It has a loud croaking voice.
