Today is the seventeenth day of the April A to Z Challenge. I will be writing about different frog species based on their latin species names!
The A. quinquevittatus is a species of frog found in the Rio Madiera drainage in the Southern Amazon Basin in Brazil & Bolivia. Up until 1990 it was refered to as Ranitomeya ventrimaculata.
It can typically be found in tropical forests & freshwater marshes and will live in the leaf litter on the forest floor.
This frog is gorgeous with its striking orange spotted legs.
The IUCN red list lists the A. quinquevittatus as of least concern as it is found locally abundant.
Hope you enjoyed Q! Check out my previous A to Z posts:
