Animal Spotlight: Tomato Frog
Tomato frogs are native to Madagascar and inhabit forests, marshes and areas near rivers. Male tomato frogs can be identified by their orange and brown coloration, while females have a vibrant red coloration. When the gender of an animal species can be differentiated by color, it is called sexual dimorphism.
Fun Fact: The bright coloration of this species indicates its toxic nature to predators. When threatened, the tomato frog can secrete a toxin that will deter predators.
