Caption: Centrolenella orientalis, known as the glass frog, sitting on the underside of a Heliconia leaf & calling to attract a female. The vocal sac of the male is fully inflated here. Males call from the undersides of leaves above streams. Once mating is successful the eggs are stuck to the undersurface of the leaf &, on hatching, the tadpoles drop into the water. This species of frog is found on the Caribbean island of Tobago & in Venezuela.
