Costa Rica News – So many people travel to Costa Rica in order to see the incredible variations of both flora and fauna that the Costa Rica micro-climate have to offer. You can head to the beach to study sea turtles, visit the rain forests and watch the white faced monkeys and of course see the many types of frogs that Costa Rica has to offer.
This video shows a whole bunch of gliding leaf frogs chilling near some water in a mating frenzy.
According to the video description, these frogs were filmed in Corcovado National Park in Costa Rica, where once upon a time I actually happened to briefly live, although then I was more interested in butterflies than cool-ass frogs. It’s not rare to encounter tree frogs in general, but gliding leaf frogs are rare, and seeing so many in one place is even rarer. They get their common name from a curious method of escape they have at their disposal: If they need to get somewhere in a hurry, they can drop off a tree, and use the wide webbing between their feet to slow their descent.
