Amazon milk frog - The Mission golden-eyed tree frog or Amazon milk frog (Trachycephalus resinifictrix) is a large species of arboreal frog native to the Amazon Rainforest in South America.

Amazon Milk Frogs Are Misleading - These are some really pretty photographs of the Amazon Milk Frog (Trachycephalus resinifictrix). "Hmm, wonder where the name Amazon Milk Frog came from?" If you said something along the lines of maybe because the coloration of the frog resembles blotchy "milk" like patches... you'd be wrong. The "milk" part of the name actually comes from the milky, poisonous substance the frog produces when it feels threatened.
