One animal that will need to heavily adapt to climate change is the tree frog. Tree frogs are a collection of amphibian species, many of whom commonly live in coastal regions. As tadpoles, most tree frogs are herbivores, but as they grow, they learn to yet small invertebrates like flies, crickets, and ants. It is certain that climate change will be a difficult challenge for tree frogs to overcome. Many of them live in coastal areas, and need water to lay their eggs and hatch their tadpoles, but wouldn’t be able to survive in an oceanic environment. Therefore, the frogs would need to make major adaptations to react to potential flooding of their homes. As illustrated, these adaptations may include the ability to breathe underwater through their skin, color changes to camouflage with water, and eventually, the ability to consume tiny fish in the water.
