thanks!, yeah they suck all the air into their lungs and then force it into the air sac under their chin to create the call

Does he blow up his abdomen when calling? I've never seen a tree frog look all bloated like that!

Whoa, cool!
Once I found one of these on a tree limb, and while I was looking at it, it jumped onto my face! It just stuck there for a minute. It was an awesome experience :)
