Fringed Leaf Frog

Species name:

 Cruziohyla craspedopus


This stunning frog is rarely seen by humans as it lives in the high canopies of tropical rainforests in Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru and only descends to lower branches to breed in small water pools in trees or on the ground. While listed as least concern by the IUCN, its populations are feared to be declining due to loss of habitat from human activities such as agriculture.

Conservation Status: 

Listed as a species of Least Concern by IUCN Red List

Geographic Range:
