Eleutherodactylus leprus is the “tink” frog of Belize rainforests.  Their call is a repetitious “tink, tink, tink.”  They normall call sitting on leaves just above the ground, but are difficult to find.

The “tink” frog of Trinidad is Eleutherodactylus urichti.  These tiny frogs seem to occupy the same niche as Belize’s Eleutherodactylus leprus.
