Devil poison frog in its cup | Chocó rainforest, Ecuador

July 27, 2020

Tiny devil poison frog (Oophaga sylvatica) in a red mushroom cup. Poison frogs are among my favorite frogs ! This specie was actually the first one I have seen in wild in my life. At the beginning I was kinda doubting to find one, but finally the guides and I were able to spot a few of them :)
They jump quite often, so it is not very easy to photograph. Furthermore, their skin is quite shiny, which reflects a lot the flash light. On the contrary, their eyes are quite dark and really need a catch light.
