Boana rufitela — Red-webbed Treefrog
Some other names for this species:
Scarlet-webbed Treefrog, Canal Zone Treefrog
This species was until 2017 placed in the genus Hypsiboas.
This frog was daysleeping in plain sight near the dining room at Evergreen Lodge. We eventually woke it up to clearly see how it earned the name "Red-webbed Treefrog".
The next day, we found another of these sleepy frogs. This one rested on a beautifully colored and stained palm frond along the edge of a side channel of the Tortuguero river.
