Pic of the Day: A red-eyed tree frog in Bijagua, Costa Rica

December 11, 2019

Hoppy Wednesday, everyone!

The red-eyed tree frog has become a Costa Rican icon as a result of its ubiquity and beauty. They are nocturnal, so your best chance to spot one is after the sun sets — if you can handle the rainforest at night.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) classifies the red-eyed tree frog as “least concern,” though it notes the population may be in decline due to threats from residential development, agriculture and pollution.

Tico Times reader Daniel Feldman captured this photo during a nighttime walk in Bijagua.
