Most of you have seen this frog before, either on TV or in a zoo, but the best place to find them is in Tortugero, Costa Rica. This rain forest in Costa Rica is full of wild life and is noted for having an abundance of Red Eye Tree Frogs. These frogs are nocturnal so when you go to any of these resorts they will most likely have a area for there Red Eye Tree Frogs and you will be able to see them like I did. Check out this video and I hope this inspires you to head down there!
