Red-eyed Tree Frog Eggs

Agalychnis callidryas


Red-eyed Tree frog's eggs in a jelly-like substance deposited on a leaf. Taken at night with flash. I think they probably belong to the Red-eyed Tree Frog (Agalychnis callidryas) as I saw several in that patch of trees around a small pond.


Seen in the grounds of Mawamba Lodge, Tortuguero, Costa Rica. Native to the tropical rainforests of Central America.


Thanks Juan for this spotting showing the development of the eggs.

Red eyed tree frog, no doubt. The lodges create mini sanctuaries for them as part of the tourist attractions.
