Baracoa Dwarf Frog

The Baracoa dwarf frog is a frog only found in and around El Yunque, Baracoa, in eastern Cuba. These tiny relatively bright yellow frogs barely get to 1.33 cm long. They are part of a species only found in Cuba, all of which are tiny, relatively bright, and toxic. The Baracoa dwarf frog has no webbing between its toes. They are found on land, under leaf litter and occasionally in coffee and cacao plantations. Male Baracoa dwarf frogs make an irregular high chirping sound.
