Like the red-eyed tree frog, during the day it lies dormant, hiding their amazing bright colors beneath his feet. Closes her eyes are bright red with green shaded eyelids, so he did not see. If that fails, it tries to mimic the venomous mammals and shows her bright purple and red in the last ditched effort to avoid being eaten. Although it was suggested that the bright colors act as sexual signals. This hypothesis is still to discuss.

Tree frogs can actually change its color to a large extent. So much so that if a leaf will be green, but when the bark can change color to brownish-gray. This is the tree frog locations not seen during the day. Because if they are found, most likely, they will die.

The structure of the tree frog should be able to carry out all types of branches and twigs. Unlike water or land frog toad frog should be able to effectively move from branch to branch. However, not all "tree frogs" are not necessarily the forest dwellers. The closest that the European tree frog gets into the forest, is likely to be sunny edge of the forest.

The European tree frog is more likely to be seen in places such as wet camping parks and gardens with wetland nearby. This is the reason why the European tree frog is known to reasonable as they are often in the human contact.

Frogs are known as opportunistic hunters and are not known to actively search for prey, and to sit in good condition and wait for insects to pass through. Common foods butterfly flies crickets and any other species of insects, which he knows are not poisonous.

The greatest threat to the survival of tree frogs is not necessarily a dirty or even a problem, but habitat loss and degradation of the rural economy and culture.
