The Amazonian Fringed Leaf Frog, #Cruziohyla craspedopus. A rare and mysterious frog from Peru. This species breeds in tree holes and rarely come to the ground. These frogs have elaborate fringes on their legs, and together with their complex #camouflage are virtually invisible to predators. These #nocturnal frogs sleep in plain view on top of sturdy leaves in the forest canopy.
