The Amazon Milk Frog (Trachycephalus resinifictrix) is an arboreal amphibian. It is also called the Mission Golden-Eyed Tree Frog or the Blue Milk Frog.
The Amazon Milk Frog is light-grey with brown or black bands. As it ages, it develops bumpy skin. It looks like milk has been spilled on it, but the name actually refers to the milky fluid that it excretes when it is stressed.
It is a fairly large frog, measuring 6-10 centimetres (2-4 inches) in length.
The Amazon Milk Frog is native to the Amazon rain forest in South America. It likes humidity and areas with high rainfall, as well as slow-moving rivers.
