plectrohyla exquisita

Peek a boo! Meet one of my favorite frogs - the Exquisite Spike-thumb Frog (Plectrohyla exquisita), a critically endangered species found only in Cusuco National Park, Honduras at my HARCC @frogrescue field site. They have such inquisitive attitudes & seem to study me as much as I study them! 🐸 #frogs #amphiblr #animal #outdoors #cute

Will this frog croak before we ever hear it “ribbit”? This is the Exquisite spike-thumb frog from Honduras (Plectrohyla exquisita) and it’s critically endangered due to chytrid fungus. No one has ever heard what their call sounds like. I hope we can save them from extinction and one day listen to them croak, in a good way!
