Mountain Coqui

Eleutherodactylus portorricensis


The sound they make (Co-Qui) serves two purposes. 'CO' serves to repel males and establish territory while the 'QUI' serves to attract females.


Hi up in the mountains of Toro Negro Forest we found several of them hiding under big leafs and under rocks. Very humid area.


I marked a website that can listen to the different coqui's songs :) enjoy

Esto no es E. portoricensis, es E. coqui, el ojo de E. portoricensis es blanco, este es gris y en Toro Negro no se encuentra, solamente en el Yunque y las montañas de Camuy
