Rainforest Rocket Frog

Silverstoneia flotator

Description:

Rainforest rocket frog (Silverstoneia flotator) is a terrestrial, diurnal frog found in humid lowlands of Costa Rica and Panama. It is generally very common and therefore considered to be of Least Concern by IUCN. The taxonomy is in need of a review, as it may consist of a complex of several species.

Notes:

These frogs are incredibly small! But have amazingly loud voices. They can be heard singing 24 hours a day in the rainforest of Panama without ever being found. It took 2 herpers (myself and another member of our group) 30 minutes of isolating a call to find one frog. The effort paid off even though this is a least concern species, it is one that is normally heard, but rarely seen.
