Hourglass Frog

Hourglass Treefrogs, or Dendropsophus ebraccatus, are tiny, yellow frogs. They are Central American amphibians and are tolerant of ecological disturbance. They differ from other frogs (and, perhaps, all other vertebrates)—they can lay their eggs in the water or on land. If little shade exists, they go for the water. With shade, they lay their eggs on land. When in the water, the tadpoles are eaten by dragonfly nymphs. To escape the dragonflies, the frog larvae can change their tail color (Wikipedia).
