Description - Agalychnis spurrelli is a nocturnal, arboreal canopy-dwelling species, with unusual methods of movement. It moves through the canopy by climbing vines and branches using a hand-over-hand locomotion. It also parachutes while leaping, to move horizontally. The parachuting leaps are accomplished by spreading out the hands and feet so that the frog's large, extensively webbed feet are parallel to the substrate.
