  • date of photo  Apr 25, 2002
  • location   La Selva Biological Station, Puerto Viejo (Sarapiquí, Heredia Province, Costa Rica)
  • family Eleutherodactylidae
  • order Anura
  • class Amphibia
  • habitat  Found in leaf litter by 'quadrat sampling.'
  • notes   This is a juvenile, about 2.5cm long. Note the long eye mask and the X-pattern on the back. I have seen only a few E. noblei, but I suspect that the juveniles start out yellow-colored, like this one here, but this color is replaced with more reds and browns as the frog matures.
