Golden colored frog
Was in the hot sun on a warm wooden deck
Beautiful golden coloration
Excellent amphibian spotting!
Great shot Yasser!
Whoa, beautiful frog! I love those black mask lines! It looks pretty big, about how big was it?? Pics are great by the way... such lovely face shots! :)
Thanks Lars! I'm practicing :)
Great macro, Yasser
Daniele and Yasser, The two of you are getting me very intrigued in this area.
Hi Yasser,Your posting intrigued me; I think I may have seen the same frog 4 years ago!http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/639...
Gordon, thanks for the help! I think you're right. I've added some more photos of a higher resolution. It was really beautiful.
Could be a masked frog (Smilisca phaeota). They exhibit a wide variation in overall coloration, although the facial patterns remain pretty much the same. See http://biogeodb.stri.si.edu/bocas_databa... and see what you think. I did a bit of research on images and am fascinated by the number of frog species in that area.
