Caption: Pipa parva is an aquatic frog of the family Pipidae. They are found from Northwestern Venezuela to Northeastern Colombia. Females carry their eggs on their backs. The eggs sink into a special spongy tissue and are concealed from view shortly after being placed on the female's dorsum by the male. Tadpoles hatch and swim out of the special spongy skin. These frogs have special structures on their fingertips that detect electrical fields produced by prey items. These organs look like small star shaped structures at each finger tip. For this reason, these frogs are sometimes called star-fingered toads. This individual was photographed in 2007.
