Caption: Close-up of the eye and eardrum of a common big-headed rain frog (Oreobates quixensis). Frogs do not have an external ear like mammals, instead the eardrum (tympanic membrane) is located directly on the outside of the head. The role of this membrane is to transmit sound waves from the outside world to the middle ear. These frogs live in leaf litter in tropical forests. Photographed in the Amazon rainforest at Tiputini Biodiversity Research Station, Ecuador.
