  Common Tree Frog (foamy nest)

 

Vietnam

Common Tree Frogs (fig.) lay their eggs in a foamy mass, that they stick onto a surface or vegetation overhanging a pond or other water source, and which will in due time harden into a protective casing. This allows for the young tadpoles to fall into the water below, once the eggs hatch. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
