Tree Frog Facts
The tiny Tree Frog, found throughout the world is in many places endangered and protected.. The beloved Virgin Island Tree Frog, known as "Bo-Peep", and called in Puerto Rico "Coqui", is named for its loud mating call. At night the islands come alive with the rasping orchestra of insects and other creatures, punctuated by a loud chorus of tree frog calls.
Caribbean Tree Frogs are non-poisonous, very small, often no more than 1 ˝" in length, and have tiny suction cups on the base of their toes. Most often seen in shady, damp areas, climbing small shrubs and bushes, or even the walls of houses, they are unique in that the young are born as tiny froglets and not as tadpoles and it is the male who watches over the eggs and young. Indeed, froglets can often be seen hitching a ride on dad's back. Tree frogs are an important part of the tropical environment as they consume many insect pests including mosquitoes and termites.
Family: Ranidae, Genus: Eleutherodactylus
Virgin Island Fossil Coral Figurines are not painted...
They are shot through with color as they are made. Every figurine made is unique. The technique of the artisan in laying in the colors, the batch of white fossil coral prepared for use, the temperature, the humidity, all affect how the colors will flow. No two will ever be exactly the same. All our pieces are all individually made. The Coral Studio employs no mass production techniques, only skilled craftsmen.
