Panama golden frog

The Panama golden frog lives in Panama, a country in Central America. Unlike other frogs, the Panama golden frog lacks eardrums and communicates by waving its hands.

In many parts of Panama this frog is considered a good luck charm and people collect it from the wild to put in their homes. For this reason, today the Panama golden frog is an endagered species.

The Mongabay Kids site (kids.mongabay.com) aims to help children learn about rainforests and the environment. This site is still under development and I am working to add additional content as time permits. If you have comments or are interested in submitting educational content for the site, please feel free to contact me.

The site is available in many different languages, including Portuguese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese, and German.
