They are found in Japan, and in Madagascar and in the Congo River Basin and they represent the largest frog group. For a topic outline on this subject see List of basic Japan topics. Madagascar, or Republic of Madagascar (older name Malagasy Republic) is an Island nation in the Indian Ocean off the southeastern These frogs have also been spotted throughout the South-Eastern United States. Most of the species are arboreal and this may include reproducing in trees. Arboreal is a word meaning "related to or resembling trees" Mating frogs, while in amplexus, hold onto a branch, and beat their legs to form a foam. Amplexus (Latin "embrace" is a form of Pseudocopulation in which a male Frog grasps a female with his front legs while she lays her eggs The eggs are laid in the foam, and seminal fluid covers them. In some species, this is done in a large group. The foam is laid above a water source, so the tadpoles fall into the water once they hatch.
The species within this family vary in size, from 1. 5 to 12 centimetres. As they are mostly arboreal, they have toe discs, and those of the genus Chiromantis have two opposable fingers on each hand. Chiromantis is a genus of Frogs in the family Rhacophoridae. Most live in the African tropics but the recently described Chiromantis This family also contains the flying frog, for example: Wallace's flying frog (Rhacophorus nigropalmatus). The "flying" frog is a frog that has the ability to glide The Species Rhacophorus nigropalmatus, commonly known as Wallace's Flying Frog, is a Moss frog found at least from to Malay Peninsula These frogs have extensive webbing between their hands and feet, allowing them to glide through the air.
