Besides Kermit the frog, this might the second most famous frog in the world, the Red-eyed Leaf-Frog (Agalychnis callidryas), one of Costa Rica's emblems and one of the nearly 100 species of herps you can see during our herping tour.⠀

In the Amazon basin lives one of the weirdest amphibians 🐸. When you see it for the first time, it is difficult to realize it is a frog. Fully camouflaged among the leaf litter, the Amazon Horned-Frog (Ceratophrys cornuta) remains much of its life buried in the ground. It is an ambush predator! It strikes almost everything that moves in front of it, from insects and frogs to even small rodents 🐭... sometimes choking to death in the process.
