Cascade Glass Frog

Sachatamia albomaculata


males to about 30mm, dark green with numerous yellow spots on the dorm and limbs, bones are dark green


rainforest in lowlands and foothills, Pacific and Caribbean side


One of 4 species of glass frog spotted while night hiking in Yatama reserve. No parental care is evident with this species. They lay their egg clutches in a unique horseshoe pattern on a leaf above a stream and then abandon them. The eggs hatch and the tadpoles drop into the stream below. Due to it being night, I don't have any general habit shots, but this was about knee height on a leaf on a small shrub next to a fast flowing river.
