A Mashpi glass frog (Hyalinobatrachium mashpi) observed on a leaf in the Andes region of Ecuador.

H. mashpi have similar color patterns (left), transparent abdomens (center), and exhibit similar behavioral patterns—namely extended parental care—like other members of its genus.

On the right, a male Mashpi glass frog protects its eggs until they hatch as tadpoles.
