Lemur tree frogs are very small, with males measuring approximately 3 cm in length; the females are slightly larger at about 4 cm. Their most notable feature is large bulging eyes, with silvery white irises. They have camouflage protection; greenish-yellow to blend in during the day, turning to a reddish-brown at night when they are most active.

Diet
Lemur frogs feed on various insects, snails, and small invertebrates.

Reproduction & Lifespan
Lemur frogs lay eggs on the undersides of leaves that overhang a body of water. This allows the tadpoles to fall into the water when they hatch.
