The Waxy Monkey Treefrog was completed on 6.05.09. I had a wonderful close encounter with a Waxy Monkey Treefrog in Palm Springs a few years ago and since then I have wanted to illustrate one. The Waxy Monkey Treefrog followed me and my dog Escher - who was very interested in it but I made him keep his distance. I also sometimes see them in the regional parks when hiking. The drawing is based on a photo by David Tunick.
The Waxy Monkey Tree Frog - also called the Painted Belly Leaf Frog - is native to the tropical rainforests of Central and South America. It has completely adapted to life in the trees, and lays its eggs in a leaf, which it then fold in half to protect them. When the young are born, they drop from the leaf into the water. The males are about 2-3 inches long and the female about 25% larger. These amphibians do very well in captivity and are often kept as pets and displayed in zoos.
