Rusty tree frog

Hypsiboas boans (Linnaeus, 1758)


The rusty tree frog, Hypsiboas boans, is a species of frog in the Hylidae family found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Panama, Peru, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, and Venezuela.
Males are between 101 and 128 mm and females between 91 and 123 mm.


Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, rivers, and intermittent freshwater marshes. I found this critter above 840 m above sea level, near the jungle of Atlantic Forest, at Parque São Vicente, in Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro.


The town of the coordinates (lat: -22.538562, long: -43.228104) that I used for search, is not DUQUE DE CAXIAS, as reports the search map tool of this page, but PETRÓPOLIS, as shown here:
