The Orange Spotted Tree Frog resides in the southern region of the African continent. It can be recognized by its distinct yellow body covered in bright orange spots. Its shape is more similar to a gecko, but genetically it is closest to the African Whippersnapper frog. The distinct colors of the Orange Spotted Tree Frog help keep away its main predator, the Bald Eagle.. The colors also help the Orange Spotted tree Frog attract its prey.

The Orange Spotted Tree Frog consumes African Shoodoo Mosquitoes as well as orange grass. During the summer the Orange Spotted Tree Frog also consumes earthworms and African slugs to stay hydrated. This omnivore thrives in its tree and sand habitat since there are plenty of mosquitoes, grass, earthworms, and slugs. The adaptation study led by John Burkes at UC Berkley in 2004 showed that the Orange Spotted Tree Frog is also able to thrive in a mountain habitat. Burkes concluded this was due to the high supply of slugs and grass located on most mountains. 

In several ancient African cultures, the Orange Spotted Tree Frog plays a religious role. The Tutimen tribe would sacrifice the Orange Spotted Tree Frog to Richmond, god of justice. The Tutimen tribe believed this would help keep the peace between the Tutimen and other tribes. In the Arayman tribe, the Orange Spotted Tree Frog was eaten on the birthday of the tribe's Chief. This was done to please the god of leadership so that he ensures the health of the Chief for the next year.
