Thank you KarenL and everyone else for your comments! This frog's eyes give off a eerie reddish glow when a flashlight or headlamp reflect off of them, making them easy to spot when walking jungle trails at night. They remain perfectly still as you approach in hopes that you don't see them, which makes them a perfect species to photograph!

On day 3 of Amazon Awareness Week, we feature the nocturnal smoky jungle frog, a large species measuring up to 7” in length and weighing in at up to 12 ounces.

The species is able to secrete a toxic mucus that makes the frog slippery and hard to hold as well as poisonous to predators.
