The SAVE THE FROGS! Eco-tour to Belize has taken off to a great start! The rains have come and the frogs are out! So far we have encountered 10 species of frogs and toads.
By far the most beautiful of frog species we observed this evening was the Red-eyed Tree Frog, Agalychnis callidryas.
It is the rainy season in Belize and many species of amphibians are on the hunt for a mate.
Besides the gorgeous Red-eyed Tree Frogs, we also witnessed a pair of Mexican Tree Frogs, Smilisca baudinii, calling from a large puddle.
Even the toads were calling! This Gulf Coast Toad, Incilius valliceps, was found on the trail. What a great looking toad!
Besides frogs we also observed this gorgeous Parrot Snake cruising through the vegetation.
Considering this is the first night, we know it’s going to be a great Eco-tour! More updates to come!
