The Amazon Milk Frog, scientific name Trachycephalus resinifictrix, is a species of tree frog native to the Amazon rainforest in South America.

They are relatively large tree frogs, with adults measuring between 2.5-4 inches (6.5-10 cm) in length. They have bright green skin with black markings on their back and legs. Their eyes are large and orange, which helps them see in low light conditions.

Amazon Milk Frogs are nocturnal and arboreal, spending most of their time in trees near streams or other bodies of water. They are known for their loud, piercing calls that they use to communicate with other frogs.

As their name suggests, Amazon Milk Frogs produce a sticky, white, milk-like secretion from their skin when threatened or stressed. This secretion contains toxins that help to deter predators.

Amazon Milk Frogs are popular in the pet trade due to their unique appearance and relatively low-maintenance care requirements. However, they require a specialized setup with plenty of vertical space, live plants, and access to clean, fresh water. They also need a varied diet of live insects and other small invertebrates to maintain proper health.
