T-shirt design for kids commemorating the 125 year history of the National Geographic Society.
This iconic rain-forest amphibian sleeps by day stuck to a leaf-bottom. When disturbed, they flash their bulging red eyes and reveal their huge, webbed orange feet. This technique, called startle coloration, may give a bird or snake pause, offering a precious instant for the frog to spring to safety.
Red-eyed tree frogs are not endangered. But their habitat is shrinking at an alarming rate, and their highly recognizable image is often used to promote the cause of saving the world's rain forests.
The red-eyed tree frog is a cute image for a kids t-shirt; moreover, it should be used to promote the cause of saving the world's rain forests.
