Chiriqui Robber Frog (Pristimantis cruendus)

The Chiriqui Robber Frog is a rare nocturnal, arboreal inhabitant of humid lowland and montane forest in tropical countries, namely Costa Rica, Panama and Colombia. Their color and pattern is highly variable and cryptic, which helps them to camouflage easily in the forest. It lacks webbing on the hands and feet, but shows greatly enlarged disks on the toes and fingers. The best field mark to identify this species is the black reticulum on the brown eye.
