Red Eyed Tree Frog
Hi, my name is Froggy. I am the Arenal.net mascot, and I live in the wild. I was photographed in the Arenal region, but I can be found throughout Costa Rica.
Since I have been given this page, I would like to set the record straight: I am a "Red-Eyed Tree Frog.” I am not a "Drunk Frog," as some people have mistakenly labeled me. This label is a common mistake. People take one look at my red eyes, and they assume I have a horrid hangover. However, I am far too busy at night for parties. I sleep during the day. Then when it gets dark, I catch insects. This way, the bugs are not frightened away by my eyes.
There are some people who think the photographer should use red-eye reduction for these photos. This is not true. My eyes really are this totally red! Bring your camera to Costa Rica, and you will see for yourself!
