The beautiful Dendropsophus bifurcus
Posted on  20 Jan, 2016  in Uncategorized

Found only in one 30m swamp in our 2000 hectare reserve, this species is especially vulnerable to disturbance. The swamp was almost completely destroyed by road construction which removed tree cover and started to dry up the pools but the frogs are fortunately fairly resilient. We went in and dug more trenches for its tadpoles and added branches to shade the swamp further. This is a male photographed mid-call, trying to attract a mate.
