Reseda glass frog

Known for their distinctive calls, which resemble a metallic “tink” sound

Native to the lush rainforests of Central and South America, this frog exhibits a distinct characteristic that sets it apart from other species: a translucent belly. The translucent nature of its skin allows observers to glimpse its internal organs, including its beating heart and digestive system, adding to its allure and charm.

Reseda glass frogs showcase stunning colors on their translucent bellies, ranging from pale yellow to vibrant orange. This unique feature not only contributes to their visual appeal but also serves a practical purpose, allowing them to blend seamlessly into their leafy surroundings while remaining hidden from potential predators.

Like other glass frog species, Reseda glass frogs are predominantly nocturnal, becoming more active under darkness. Equipped with adhesive toe pads, they are skilled climbers, effortlessly navigating the dense foliage of their rainforest habitat. These adhesive pads enable them to grip onto leaves and branches securely, facilitating their movement through the treetops.

In addition to their remarkable physical adaptations, Reseda glass frogs are known for their distinctive calls, which play a crucial role in communication and courtship. Males produce a series of melodious calls to attract females during the breeding season, with each species exhibiting its unique vocalizations. These calls serve as a means of identifying potential mates and establishing territory within their habitat.
