Agalychnis callidryas is a medium-sized, brightly colored frog. This species has leaf-like or dark green skin on the dorsal surfaces, dark blue, purple or brown flanks, with white or yellow vertical or diagonal bars. The presence of temporary or permanent ponds is important for reproduction, which takes place through larval development. It can live in secondary forests, and even in very degraded areas if there is tree cover near the ponds. Not much is known about the diet and feeding behavior of this species. What is known is that it feeds on small invertebrates such as insects and mollusks.
