The critically endangered White Eyed Leaf Frog (Agalychnis lemur) in a former conservation program at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
Agalychnis lemur, the white eyed leaf frog, is a critically threatened species (formerly Hylomantis lemur and Phyllomedusa lemur). The species has endured serious population declines throughout its range in Central America. Deadly amphibian chytrid fungus is believed to have played a part in the species’ decline as has habitat destruction. IUCN lists it as endangered. The species deposits eggs on leaves above a water source where they develop until they hatch. Hatching tadpoles drop into the water below. This individual is from a population in Central Panama.
''Hylomantis lemur'' is a species of frog in the family Hylidae that is found in Colombia, Costa Rica, and Panama.
Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest, subtropical or tropical moist montane forest, rivers, freshwater marshes, and intermittent freshwater marshes.
It is threatened by habitat loss and the fungal disease chytridiomycosis.
