This real taxidermy flying tree frog is called Rhacophorus reinwardtii and is a species of frog in the Rhacophoridae family. It is variously known under the common names of black-webbed tree frog, green flying frog, or Reinwardt’s tree frog. It is found in China, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, and possibly Brunei and Myanmar. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, freshwater marshes, and intermittent freshwater marshes. It is not considered threatened by the IUCN.
The females grow to be larger than the males. They can be either light green or dark green colors and they have black spots around their backs and heads. Males can have more colors on the sides of their abdomens,such as orange, green, purple, black, and yellow. Their eyes can be light green, light yellow or light grey. They have horizontal pupils.
Frogs are a diverse and largely carnivorous group of short-bodied, tailless amphibians composing the order Anura. In Ancient Greek an- meaning without and +oura meaning tail. The oldest fossil “proto-frog” appeared in the early Triassic of Madagascar, but molecular clock dating suggests their origins may extend further back to the Permian, 265 million years ago. Frogs are widely distributed, ranging from the tropics to sub-arctic regions, but the greatest concentration of species diversity is found in tropical rain forests. There are approximately 4,800 recorded species, accounting for over 85% of extant amphibian species. They are also one of the five most diverse vertebrae orders.
