Two Granular Glass Frogs on Leaf

In late April on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica, as the peak of the dry season wanes, one of the most interesting species of frogs in Central America begins to congregate around streams to reproduce. All glass frog species are known for their translucent skin. Some species are so transparent, that their organs can be seen pulsating just below the skin.
