Identidad Madidi BITÁCORA DE VIAJE

Blog feed


Today our first amphibian, the marbled four-eyed frog (Pleuroderma marmoratum), another new record for Madidi, found living under stones in the Andean peat bogs or bofedales, wetlands that are critical as relatively more productive habitat for much of the High Andean fauna, as well as domestic camelids. As we search for the frog a colorful pericote mouse (Auliscomys pictus) clambers across an alpaca corral wall and allows us to photograph it in its home. Prior to Identidad Madidi virtually no research had been conducted on High Andean small mammals and so this observation also represents a new record for the park.
