Amazon milk frog
Pictures of amazon milk frogs (Trachycephaalus resinifictrix). Native to South America, this frog lives in humid rainforests near water sources. They can grow up to four inches in length, and will eat any insect they can fit in their mouth.
Disease, habitat descruction, and other human interactions have led to a decline in their populations, but zoos and aquariums are breeding them to build a reserve population.

Fun fact: Milk frogs are named for the milk-like secretions they discharge when threatened. Wait, threatening frogs and bodily discharge is fun? Worst.fun.fact.ever.
