Tadpoles of Duellmanohyla soralia in Cusuco National Park, Honduras. These animals are part of the largest remaining population of this species, which is fragmented in distribution between the Honduras-Guatemala border.
This species was previously declared extinct by the IUCN Red List, until I found this specimen in 2008.
Found somewhere along a transect around the Cantilles Satellite Camp, Cusuco National Park, Honduras.
There were always tons of these guys hanging around Base Camp. Some were tiny (this one is about the size of a quarter), but we saw larger ones.
I have more photos on another computer, will add when I get a chance.
This bat was mist-netted by the bat team for Operation Wallacea's 2012 Honduras expedition, outside the Cantilles Satellite Camp in PNC.
