PUMPKIN TOADLET (Brachycephalus ephippium): SPECIES ACCOUNT

All six species live in different areas within the far eastern part of central and southern Brazil along the Atlantic Ocean coastline.


The tiny frogs in this family live among the leaves that cover the ground of warm, humid forests. They often live in forests on mountainsides up to 2,240 feet (750 meters) above sea level. They also breed on land.


Scientists are studying the pumpkin toadlet because its skin oozes a poison that might be useful in making some medicines.
