Here’s a Mossy Red-eyed Frog (Duellmanohyla soralia) from my HARCC @frogrescue field site in the mountains of Cusuco National Park. Despite the brilliant red eyes, their body patterns are very cryptic and blend into the moss and lichen that blankets the rainforest. This species is classified as endangered on the IUCN Red List. http://www.FrogRescue.com

Over my past 10 years of amphibian chytrid research, I’ve examined thousands of frog tadpoles in the rainforest of Honduras. After taking a scoop of river water into my bowl, this particular group settled into a neat swirl! These are tadpoles of the endangered Mossy Red-eyed Frog (Duellmanohyla soralia). After being counted and swabbed for chytrid infection, they were released right back into the river.
