Casque-head Treefrog, Triprion petasatus

 

Photos by Bob Thomas, Tikal, Guatemala, May 2010.

Casque-head treefrogs get their name from the morphology of the head with skin conforming very tightly to the skull, making this unique in appearance.  They may be abundant in moist areas in Belize, Guatemala, and other parts of the Yucatan Peninsula.  They have a very loud and distinct quacking call.
