Cricket Glass Frog

Hyalinobatrachium fleischmanni

Description:

Glass Frogs are uncommon and small, with adults measuring between 23 and 28 millimeters. As with other Glass Frogs, females are normally larger than males. On humid nights, male frogs call from the top or, more commonly, from the underside of leaves bordering streams in primary or secondary forests. Males generally call from one to six meters above the surface of the stream.

Notes:

Glass frogs look similar to tree frogs, except that the eyes of a glass frog are oriented forward, whereas the eyes of a tree frog are oriented to the sides. The last 3 pictures are of younger frogs
