Marty’s photo of the day #1716: This week’s theme is Amazon Rainforest Frogs (then we’ll get back to warm and cuddly animals from other parts of the world, I promise). Coming up with a different nature picture every day is difficult, but I found some cool, un-posted, frog shots while perusing the photo files from my last Amazon trip. Some species I have identified; most I have not.
Today’s photo is of a green monkey frog. These very large frogs feel like candles, as they cover themselves with a waxy secretion, which helps them keep moisture in.
