The Red-Eyed Tree Frog is a common creature among the rainforests of the world. But what would happen to this brightly colored hopping animal if deforestation and global warming destroyed most of the forests? Currently, Red-Eyed Tree Frogs are mostly bright green to blend in with the leaves, and with some orange and blue. They use their bright red eyes to scare away predators. For meals, they eat insects. In the future, there will be a lot less rainforests for Red-Eyed Tree Frogs to live in. They will have to adapt to the prairie-like environment to stay alive by being a brown-green color to blend in and creating skin sacks on the sides of their face to store water during droughts. They will still have the bright red eyes to defend themselves from predators, though. Instead of living in the trees, Red-Eyed Tree Frogs will live on the ground.
