Pretty sure I killed this one trying to help it. I read that during the dry season, frogs like this kind of hibernate, sitting completely still and conserving their body moisture till the rains return, and if they're disturbed, they lose too much water and they die. This one was in my house and I accidentally bothered it, so it started hopping right into a strong spider web, it got all tangled, so I tried to help it get untangled and then put it in a dish with a bit of water thinking that'd help it recover the lost liquid, and I put the dish outside in the shade of a bush. I came back out to find the frog had turned white and hardened, quite apparently dead. Whoops.
The color change is interesting though.
