The tree frog is a semi-aquatic species that lives in the trees of rainforests. Adaptations of the tree frog are mucus covered toe pads that allow the frog to stick to any surface, long legs for jumping and climbing, green colored skin for camouflage, and a sticky tongue to catch prey. The rainforests that the frog lives in are projected to become part of the ocean when all the ice caps melt from global warming. A tree frog’s toe pads will become useless in the heavily sedimented water environment, and will develop webbed feet. The frog’s limbs and body will become longer and stronger to help propel itself through the water faster. Finally, The frog’s tongue will transform into a similar version of a worm which he will use to lure predators, then reeling the tongue in like a fishing rod into its hiding spot, buried underneath the dirt.
