Inaugural Session of the Master Herpetologist Program!

This past Saturday was the very first class, of the very first offering of the Master Herpetologist Program. This program is offered at the Amphibian Foundation and instructed by Foundation staff, as well as Zoo Atlanta and was started by an introductory class lead by state Herpetologist for GA DNR — John Jensen.

For moe information on the program, see the Master Herpetologist Program

Fringed Leaf Frog #Cruziohyla craspedopus waking up for the evening. This is one of our original founders from Peru. I am continually amazed at how beautiful and captivating this species is. #Frog #Frogs #Frogger #Froggy #FrogsOfInstagram #LeafFrog #LeafFrogs #TreeFrog #TreeFrogs #FrogLife #Crypsis #Mimicry #EatenByMonkeys #AmphibiousAF #AmphibianFound #FrogsNeedOurHelp

Amphibian Foundation Co-Founders, Crystal and Anthony Mandica and I finishing up comments on a new script for Wild Kratts @TheKrattBros !! Look for next season to highlight #PoisonFrogs — Talk about #CreaturePower !!! This is our second time working with #WildKratts - the first being the episode on #FireSalamanders. We are always delighted to help because Wild Kratts is an amazing show, which teaches children actual and factual information — helping build the next generation of conservationists — something we strive to do here at AF. This next episode will be #AmphibiousAF

Today is the first class of the first session ever of our #MasterHerpetologist Program with @ZooATL Today will be an introduction to the herpetofauna of Georgia by state Herpetologist John Jensen with GA DNR @GeorgiaWild This is going to be great!!

Blue-sided Leaf Frog #Agalychnis annae - one of the most spectacular species out there. It still blows my mind that there are frogs out there that look like this. Blue-sided Leaf Frogs are a critically endangered Central American species, susceptible to habitat loss and infectious disease. #Frog #Frogs #Frogger #Froggy #FrogsOfInstagram #LeafFrog #LeafFrogs #TreeFrog #TreeFrogs #FrogLife #Crypsis #Mimicry #AmphibiousAF #AmphibianFound #FrogsNeedOurHelp

Adorable baby Amazon Milk Frog, #Trachycephalus resinifictrix in the Herpetology Lab at the Amphibian Foundation. This species is known to utilize tree holes, which are an important component of their reproductive biology. Spawning occurs in these microhabitats and the larvae remain inside until #metamorphosis #Frog #Frogs #Frogger #Froggy #FrogsOfInstagram #TreeFrog #TreeFrogs #TreeFrog #TreeFrogs #FrogLife #Crypsis #Mimicry #AmphibiousAF #AmphibianFound #FrogsNeedOurHelp #MilkFrog

An adorable #GopherFrog which is Georgia's rarest frog, and imperiled throughout the southeast US. One of the Amphibian Foundation's highest priority projects, we are working with partners to save this species through captive-propagation, head-starting and habitat restoration. #Frog #Frogs #Frogger #Froggy #FrogsOfInstagram #GopherFrogs #FrogLife #AmphibiousAF #AmphibianFound #FrogsNeedOurHelp

Granular #GlassFrog, #Cochranella granulosa. A beautiful species from Central America. Like other glass frogs, it's relative translucence helps the frog blend in with its surroundings — some of the most spectacular camouflage in the natural world. Species such as these can remind us how important it is to conserve our amphibians. They are declining at an unprecedented and unsustainable rate. Currently, more than 3000 species are in decline or already extinct. #Frog #Frogs #Frogger #Froggy #FrogsOfInstagram #LeafFrog #GlassFrogs #TreeFrog #TreeFrogs #FrogLife #Crypsis #Mimicry #AmphibiousAF #AmphibianFound #FrogsNeedOurHelp
