  2. Beautiful detail on the legs, crispy too! Posted 7 years ago
  3. Top quality in difficult circumstances! I've identified it as a Pasco Poison Frog. I assume this is a sub specie of it? Posted 7 years ago
    1. Your ID is right, this is the Pasco frog. Pasco means Peru so I translated that as well but it is the same. Posted 7 years ago
