Dear Mary:

The tomato frog, or Dyscophus antongilii , is a deep red frog found in the lowlands of Madagascar, where they live in swampy areas. Tomato frogs are nocturnal, meaning that they are active at night, and eat a variety of insects. According to the Sedgwick County Zoo, there are no estimates of the numbers of tomato frogs in the wild, but people are concerned about their fate due to habitat destruction in Madagascar. Tomato frogs can live up to 20 years in captivity, and grow up to 4 inches long.

Have a great day! Ingrid Mad Scientist
