Trachycephalus resinifictrix

Amazon Milk Frog

The Amazon Milk Frog (Trachycephalus resinifictrix) is a large species of arboreal

real frog native to the Amazon Rainforest in South America. It is sometimes referred to as the blue milk frog. It was first discovered along the Maracanã River in Brazil.

Amazon milk frogs are fairly large frogs, reaching sizes of 2.5 to 4 inches in length. Adult frogs are light grey in color with brown or black banding, while juveniles will exhibit stronger contrasts. As Amazon Milk Tree Frogs age their skin will develop a slightly bumpy texture.

The "milk" in the name comes from the milky colored fluid these frogs excrete when stressed.

Amazon milk frogs inhabit humid rainforest regions. They often inhabit vegetation which extends over permanent, slow moving water sources.
