Ruthven's Frog: Allophrynidae

Geographic Range

Ruthven's frog was first found in Tukeit Hill below Kaiteur Falls in Guyana in northern South America. It has since been seen in many parts of South America, including north-central Brazil, French Guiana, Guyana, Suriname, and Venezuela. Since scientists have not yet fully explored the area around the Amazon River where this frog lives, other populations of Ruthven's frogs probably remain undiscovered. In addition, a possible second species of Ruthven's frog has been discovered in Peru.
