bug-like salamander species found in Ecuador
Conservation International is reporting the discovery of a unique bug-eyed salamander species from a recent expedition from the Nangaritza region of southeastern Ecuador. The salamander from the genus Bolitoglossa belongs to a group of salamanders also called Tropical climbing salamanders or Web-footed Salamanders. These are tree dwelling or arboreal salamanders that have feet that are fully webbed, enabling them to cling to smooth surfaces.
