About Madagascar Rain Frogs
The rain frog coloration varies from brown to grayish-green, with a white belly and red or purple thighs. They are pretty small, getting up to 1.2 inches in length. They are typically nocturnal during the rainy season and bury themselves in the ground during the dry season.
It is unknown as to how long they live, it is known that they lay between 200 and 400 eggs during breeding season. When the tadpoles hatch, they are almost completely see-through and sift food out of the water to eat. They change into froglets in just a few weeks, right before the watering hold dries up.
