#CriticallyEndangered Lemur Leaf Frog, #Agalychnis lemur from Costa Rica and Panama. One of the smallest species of Leaf Frogs. They have excellent camouflage and actually sleep on the underside of leaves during the day. A nocturnal species, they turn from bright green to a brownish red at night. The Atlanta Botanical Garden’s Amphibian Conservation Program has been working with Lemur Leaf Frogs since the 1990s, and have donated over 400 baby frogs to various institutions and conservation agencies. The hope is that once the wild home range of Lemur Leaf Frogs is once again safe for the species, there will be large enough numbers to return and repopulate protected areas of Panama and Costa Rica. #LeafFrog #LeafFrogs #Phyllomedusinae Read more:
