A Green Camouflaged Tree Frog

This tree frog seems to be hiding its toes.  Maybe he or she is bashful because its toes are not red like the red-eyed leaf frog that I showed the day before yesterday.

Although partially hidden by its hind legs, the sides of this frog have a pattern that varies from the solid color of its back,  This color variation is typical of some species of tree frogs.  By hiding the pattern, the frog is better camouflaged on a solid green leaf.

This week we are showing photos of the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

It an amazing and highly effective camouflage. Have a happy week-end!

It would be easy to miss that frog, it blends so well with the leaf.

Here I thought maybe it was due for a pedicure.
