Description Allobates zaparo a non-toxic species has modelled itself on one of two toxic frogs that are similiar - Epipedobates parvulus and E. bilinguis. Yet you would have thought that, in order to save itself from being eaten by roaming chickens and other birds it would mimic the more poisonous frog for protection. Strangely It seems it imitates the lesser toxic frog Epipedobates bilinguis
Lee Hancock, Washington DC Area Member Since April 2008 Artist Statement I've considered myself a nature photographer all my life. Ever since I was young I took notice of the emotions, social structures and personalities all living things have no matter what their size. Until recently I've always had to settle for taking mental pictures that I could never share with others. Now things have changed...allow me to share.
