Large male frog carrying its young to a small pool or water filled crevice where they will develop into froglets in 40-50 days time. Please see earlier entry for detailed description and habitat details.
This one seen in tropical highland forest an hours drive out of Tarapoto in northern Peru.
Assuming this is a male frog as they usually do the guard duty of the eggs and developing tadpoles. As eggs are generally layed in leaf litter, the tadpoles have to be transported to water to complete their growth cycle.
