Craugastor noblei - Noble's Robber Frog

Shortly after its metamorphosis, the Noble's Robber Frog (Craugastor noblei) has quite different proportions than adult specimens. The head looks way too big for the small body.


Agalychnis callidryas - Red-eyed Treefrog

The Red-eyed Treefrog (Agalychnis callidryas) will have much more intense colors when fully grown.


Dendrobates auratus - Green-and-black Poison Dart Frog

This Green-and-black Poison Dart Frog (Dendrobates auratus) already has its beautiful colors, but still the cute baby face.



Smilisca phaeota - Masked Treefrog

Maybe it is the first night out of the water for this tiny Masked Treefrog (Smilisca phaeota). Recently it used to swim in the pond as a tadpole.


Rhaebo haematiticus - Leaf Litter Toad

This young Leaf Litter Toad (Rhaebo haematiticus) has the same camouflage colors as the adult ones and due to its tiny size, it is even harder to spot.
