Jewels of the Caribbean

3 species of Poison-dart frog occur in this area;   P. lugubris, D. auratus, O. pumilio. The last 2 species, commonly known as the Green and Black Dart Frog & the Strawberry Dart Frog, both occur together here. The Strawberry dart frogs from this area are the slightly less bright but completely red form (pictured). Here is a short clip just done showing both species.

  1. Hi Andrew, It was great to meet you at the museum about the Tipping Point project with Sally from Whitworth. Thank you so much for your time, I’m really excited about the potential to work with you and the frogs. Sally is working on final drafts of proposal for funding at the mo – working title of the project is ‘It’s a Wipe Out’
    Totally loving hearing about everything you are experiencing in Costa Rica, the Sloth placement sounds so interesting, what an amazing experience.
    I cant believe what you are surrounded by – video diaries are great – hope there are more to come
    All the best & good luck with the rest of your trip
