Cruziohyla calcarifer, the Splendid Leaf Frog today in the lab. Most Leaf Frogs have incredible dorsal camouflage, making them practically invisible while their limbs are tucked in and the animal is sleeping. When they awaken, their dazzling flash colors are exposed on their flanks. #cruziohylacalcarifer #cruziohyla #Phyllomedusinae #leaffrog #camouflage #flashcolor
