  • From the female perspective … Now it’s time to think about what the female frog sees, as this fight for her love plays out below the branches. How would she describe the males leaping to reach that top branch?
  • The mating season is vital to the survival of all species in the rainforest. Compare how the banana frog’s quest for love is different from other animals. Write an article for National Geographic Kids magazine, reflecting the seriousness of the frogs’ plight for survival.
