Frog tracks

One of the hardest to find species we have on exhibit are our Mimic Poison Frogs (Ranitomeya imitator).  Today, we can at least see that they were active this morning, as evidenced by their tracks across the glass under the sleeping Leaf Frog
Directly under the sleeping Leaf frog (Cruziohyla craspedopus) you can see the Mimic Poison Frog went across the glass using it's belly as an adhesion surface. Then a second track beneath the first one reveals these frogs can transport themselves across a vertical surface using only their hands and feet!
