Ruthven's Frog: Allophrynidae


Ruthven's frogs live in lowland forests rather than forests on hillsides or in the mountains. This frog usually goes no higher on hillsides than about 656 feet (200 meters) above sea level and stays in forests that have not been logged but, nevertheless, are not too thick with plants and trees. Throughout the year, they typically stay in areas near rivers and streams. During the rainy season, they group together around low spots in the forest that fill with rain or overflowing river water.
