The Masked Tree Frog, also called the New Granada cross-banded tree frog, or Smilisca phaeota is a frog that mostly lives in the tropical forests of Central and South America. They are called the masked tree frog because they look like they are wearing a black mask. The black mask covers their eyes, which helps them hide from predators.
