Marsupial Frog

About Marsupial Frog

The Marsupial Frog female carries her eggs on her back in a pouch that is covered with a flap of skin. The male will help her gather the eggs into her pouch. She carries the eggs for three or four months. When the tadpoles are big enough to live on their own, the female will put her back end into a pool of water. She will then use her back feet to push the tadpoles into the water. This species of treefrog lives in South America.
