Three-striped Poison Frog

Ameerega trivittata
(Spix, 1824)
Madre Selva field station, Depto Loreto, Peru. January 10, 2011

After finding a first specimen of trivittata in 2011, I didn’t see another one until 2018.  The females lay their eggs in moist leaf litter; the males care for the eggs, and when they hatch, they transport the tadpoles on their backs to rain pools so they can develop.

My Flickr album for this species is here:
