New Species of High Altitude Frogs Discovered in Peru
Researchers from the Illinois Wesleyan University and the University of California, Berkeley have recently described three new species of high-elevation frogs from Peru. These new frog species we found in the cloud forests north of the Inca fortress of Ollantaytambo, Manu National Park and the upper Marcapata valley.
Unlike most other amphibian species, these three species have no tadpoles; the eggs hatch into froglets.
