This frog is gorgeous.  Found in Peru and Ecuador, it is found in the leaf litter.

Amphibia

The zaparo frog is a mimic frog, as it is not actually poisonous, but it uses it’s brightly colored appearance to its advantage and mimics the toxic E. billinguis.

      Phew! The challenge was lots of fun, but a month is about enough of every day posting. I don’t know how people can do that for any extended amount of time!

    1. Thanks!! Congratulations on making it through!! I enjoyed all your parks! It was a virtual tour! Very cool and gave me lots of places that I want to visit.

  2. That is a beautiful frog, indeed.
    Do you take your frogs out for excercise and to move about? How does that work?
