Description from Wikipedia

Aromobates orostoma (common name: Tachira rocket frog) is a species of frog in the Aromobatidae family. It is endemic to Venezuela where it is only known from near its type locality, Boca de Monte in the Táchira state. Its natural habitats are mountain streams in cloud forest. The male protects the eggs that are laid on land. After hatching, the male carries the tadpoles on his back to water where they develop further.
