Ghost Glass Frog in Costa Rica

Sachatamia ilex is commonly known as either the Ghost Glass Frog or the Limon Giant Glass Frog. They’re extremely shy animals, often only revealing themselves when it’s time to seek a mate.

During mating season, male glass frogs call out to females, but must fight other males who hear the calls and try to invade their territory. When a female finds a mate, she’ll lay her eggs on the underside of a leaf overhanging water, so the tadpoles can drip into water as they hatch.
