15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Red Spotted Glass Frog

This red spotted glass frog was found in Mindo, Ecuador, a cloud forest abundant with wildlife. You can see a bit of the transparency in his skin, especially around the webbed feet and neck areas. Although its habitat is threatened by habitat loss, introduced fish and agricultural pollution, it is still a common species and no considered threatened.
