The Cutest Frog You’ll Ever See: The LEMUR LEAF FROG

LEMUR is a small digital frog with a very cute face. It is designed to make you laugh, smile, and feel happy.

Interesting Facts About The LEMUR LEAF FROG

The LEMUR LEAF FROG is an endangered frog species found in the Amazon Rainforest. It is a small and slender green frog with a black stripe on the back. It can be seen during the daytime and can be seen during the nighttime too when it comes out at night to mate.

The LEMUR LEAF FROG is a frog species found in South America. It is one of the world’s most endangered frogs and was listed as an official candidate for the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species in 2007.


Physical Description

Lemur leaf frogs are bright green or yellowish-green with dark flecks or spots on their dorsal (back) side. Their hands, feet, and flanks are orange or yellowish-brown and their bellies are white. A pair of light eyes, a runny nose, and a mouth that’s filled with wrinkles. They go about their business in complete darkness

Leaf frogs have thin bodies and limbs, often not webbed. They move slowly, usually walking hand over hand, rarely jumping unless escaping danger.

The Lemur leaf frog, also known as the Madagascar lemur frog, is one of the smallest frog species in the world. They are only an inch or so long and have light brown or green skin with dark spots. They have large eyes that have a vertical pupil, which gives them a surprised expression when they are startled. They are mainly nocturnal and are often found under leaf litter in the wild.


This variation has been observed in most habitats and includes the confines of nature, where there is limited habitat for female frogs to breed.

Native Habitat


Traditional conservationists were reluctant to endorse undertaking preservation efforts that would interrupt the natives’ way of life and culture. However, ‘blind faith’ in local people is no longer an option, so in 2010 the first green areas focusing on conservation were established in  Bogotá, Colombia, and Yaguarapo, Mérida, Venezuela.


Lemurs can be territorial, but they do not pay much attention to their surroundings. If a lemur sees another lemur approaching while they are trying to mate, it will open its mouth and go silent instead of continuing its mating call.

One way to get rid of one male is by avoiding his territory. So a resident male may rush toward an intruder and push him off perches. Males also have a mating call if they’re grabbed by another male frog and also do aggressive-sounding “hiss.”

Food/Eating Habits

In the wild, lemur frogs eat insects and other small invertebrates. They feed on crickets, fruit flies, worms, and bugs.

Reproduction and Development


These frogs usually breed during the rainy season (April to July). Males summon females from plants near (or overhanging) ponds and slow-flowing streams. Males attack females in mating positions called amplexus, and the females lay 15 to 20 eggs.

They can lay two to three clutches per night and lay their eggs in single or double layers. Eggs are laid on or under leaves that hang above the water. Ambient humidity keeps the eggs moist as they develop, and rain causes larvae to “snake” from the eggs into the water below. The larvae hatch 7 to 14 days after fertilization, and the embryos are pale green.

Metamorphosis is a gradual transition from larvae to adults, generally occurring between 69-98 days after hatching. The tadpoles of the lemur leaf frog can also change color during the day and night, but do not have the same yellow or orange flank color as adults.


Lemur leaf frog may live up to 14 years, but the lifespan may vary according to geographical location.
