Dusty glass frog By MAXWELL BEAUREGARD

When looking at the underside of a dusty glass frog, you can see most of its internal organs.

The dusty glass frog is classified as endangered by the IUCN. It is translucent on it's stomach and on it's back there are small white spots that look like moon dust. They are about 22 to 33 millimeters long. Dusty glass frogs live in Costa Rica about 850 meters (2788.71 feet) above sea level. They eat spiders and other insects. The eggs are laid above water on a leaf. Parents do not help raise or protect eggs. Snakes, mammals, birds, and deforestation/destruction of habitats are all threats to the dusty glass frogs.

The small white spots on the top can be described as "moon dust".

Here are some ways that you can help frogs!

  • Don't use pesticides

  • Build a frog pond behind your home
  • Become an amphibian biologist
