The Amazon milk frog (Trachycephalus resinifictrix) is a 2 to 4 inch arboreal frog from South America. They are called "milk frogs" as they secrete a white poisonous substance when threatened that resembles milk. They are not unheard of in captivity though tend to mostly be kept by zoos and experienced frog hobbyists as they are difficult to keep. They have been bred in captivity since it was discovered that they will only breed in the hollows of large trees. The mere presence of Sir David Attenboroughs also helps with their breeding process if you ask the London zoo, who had their milk frogs breed after years of attempting to coax them when he came to visit (it may have also been the new humidifier they added to their tank) .
