A beautiful yellow speckled toad, Atelopus zeteki is commonly known as the Panamanian Golden Frog.  Yes, you read that right - although its common name includes the word "frog", this species is in fact a toad!

A. zeteki is endemic (is unique to a particular location) to Panama living in the streams along the mountain slopes of the Cordilleran forests of west-central Panama.

The  IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) has listed this species as critically endangered.  Some believe that it is extinct in the wild and now only lives and breeds in captivity.

Right:  panamanian_golden_frog_png_1 (587 x 4801)
Higher resolution image (2526 x 2063)  Now only available upon request.

 

Although the specimens photographed below are a bright yellow, these toads range in colour from yellow to green to gold.  Some specimens have black spots on their legs and backs.  

Unlike the norm in the animal kingdom, the females of this species are about 25% larger than the males.

 

Did you know... 

that A. zeteki can secret a poison through its skin? One toad has enough toxin to kill 500 20-gram mice!  All the animals in the Bufonidae family, to which the Golden Frog belongs, have toxic skin secretions, but the Panamanian Golden Frog's as the most toxic!  The toad's bright colouring acts as a warning to predators that it is highly toxic. 

Did you also know... 

that the lifespan of the Golden Frog is 12 years!
