Don't mind me! - Super Tiger Legged Waxy Monkey Leaf Frog D50_8101.jpg

The genus Phyllomedusa is commonly known as the Waxy Monkey Tree Frogs, notable for their wax secreting glands on their back elbows and rump. This wax is secreted then rubbed all over the body, sealing in moisture and allowing these tree frogs to take advantage of drier conditions than other amphibians.
