dried spread flying frog, body lenght cm 4.5-5 (legs not included in the measure).

The term flying frogs or flying frogs is generally referred to as many frog species, mostly unrelated to each other, which have evolved the ability to glide over short distances thanks to the presence of strips of skin between the fingers or between the legs. It is mostly arboreal species, for which adaptation to the "flight" has turned out to be a consequence of life on the trees, which allowed them to move more quickly from one branch to another and to escape more easily to predators.
It is estimated that there are more than 3,000 different species of flying frogs, including two distinct families: Hylidae, endemic to the American continent, and particularly to the rainforests of South America, and Rhacophoridae, endemic to Asia, particularly in the monsoon jungles of South East Asia . Sometimes the term flying frogs refers mainly to the members of the latter family, the first to be observed and described and which has the greatest number of members. However, both families also include many non-flying arboreal species.
The first testimonies of flying frogs were reported by the naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace, who observed some specimens in the forests of Malaysia. The species he observed, Rhacophorus nigropalmatus, took from him the common name of "Wallace's Flying Frog". Other well-known species of flying frogs are:
Rhacophorus dulitensis
Rhacophorus pardalis
Rhacophorus reinwardtii
Rhacophorus suffry
