PUERTO RICAN TREE FROG IN FULL CHRISTMAS SPIRIT
This lovely Tree Frog swallowed a Christmas light after a bug landed on it. But don’t worry – it’s okay!
The bulb was later gently removed from its stomach.

Coquí is the common name for several species of small frogs in the Eleutherodactylus genus that are endemic to Puerto Rico.
They are onomatopoeically named for the very loud mating call which the males of two species, the common coquí and the mountain coquí, make at night. The coquí is one of the most common frogs in Puerto Rico with more than 16 different species found within its territory, including 13 in the Caribbean National Forest. Other species of this genus can be found in the rest of the Caribbean and elsewhere in the Neotropics, in Central and South America.
All species of Eleutherodactylus are characterized by direct development in which eggs hatch into small frogs, the tadpole stage being passed in the egg itself.
A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~
“IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
