Among the many weird and fascinating amphibians on our planet, very special are the Glass Frogs. This amazing frog family has a transparent skin, allowing you to view inside its small body. They are so transparent that it almost looks as if they melt into the leaves and become one with them. Glass frogs live in and among the trees and plants of humid mountain forests in Central and South America. Higher up the mountain the rainforests are called cloud forests. Glass frogs are mostly active at night, which makes them very difficult to spot for predators.
