Two things: One, the bones are still quite flexible and haven't fused together yet, but will harden shortly after hatching. Two, the lungs are deflated while in the egg. Together, this means he can squish himself up into a tiny ball.

Edit: Since several people have asked about breathing: gas exchange occurs via diffusion through the shell and membranes (allantois and chorion). Blood vessels in the membranes pick up oxygen and release carbon dioxide which can pass through the shell. This is similar to how mammalian embryos do it, but we use the placenta.

Edit 2: Thanks to /u/radomunkownperson for this awesome video about embryonic gas exchange.

Just have to say that anyone who would notice a random tree frog on a hot day, then go get him a drink, is destined to make the world a better place. Keep up the good work.

Frogs drink through their skin, so you cooled him off and quenched him. Way to go frog bro.

This thing looks like a leopard, a raccoon, a hyena, and badger depending on which section of its body you're looking at.
