Our first San Jose Cochran Frog metamorphs!

Cochranella euknemos, the San Jose Cochran frog stands out among an already stunning group of frogs
Yesterday was a big day in the Amphibian Conservation Program with the metamorphosis of our first Cochranella euknemos froglet! They hatched over a year and a half ago and we have been patiently caring for the bright pink tadpoles in the frogPOD since that time.

Glass frog larvae are even more transparent than the adults!
