Mindo Glass Frogs
Confined only to the Río Manduriacu Reserve in Ecuador, the endangered Mindo glass frogs nestle into the Andes Mountains. Because of human interference, habitat loss, and habitat threat, these small amphibians have made the endangered species list. Jaime Culebras captured this creature amid the calls of males in the forests. Scientists recently rediscovered this species in the biodiverse canyon. Researches recently spotted them in 2005, and hadn’t seen them since 1984. These elusive creatures managed to escape the human eye for several decades (The Revelator).
