Sachatamia albomaculata

Speckled glass frog is a species of frog in the family Centrolenidae. It finds shelter in Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, and Ecuador. Like all glass frogs, its natural habitats are humid lowland forest from sea level to about 1,500 m (4,900 ft). Though this frog typically lives in bushes and trees along forest streams, populations can also persist along streams in pastures.

Glass frogs are generally small, ranging from 3 to 7.5 cm (1.2 to 3.0 in) length. Like little jewels, their eyes flash from tree branches. Meanwhile, their long, yellow-tipped fingers grip around branches as if the frogs were flowers studding the tree.

They are green over most of their bodies, except for the skin along the lower surface of the body, which is transparent. Because of this, their internal viscera are visible through the skin. Hence they are known the world over as “glass frogs.”
