Caption

Living above the forest floor in water filled tree holes and in bromeliads; the reclusive Crowned Tree Frog, Anotheca spinosa, is the only member of its genus. It is found through the montane forests of Central America and suffers from habitat destruction. The tadpoles feed on mosquito larvae at first but finish their development eating food eggs the female deposits for them to eat. The process of egg feeding is called oophagy. The crown of thorns on the back of the frog's skull remains a mystery to science.
