Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:It is a forest inhabitant, occurring from tropical lowland forest to lower cloud forest. The ability of this species to adapt to disturbed habitats is unknown, although it is probably restricted to closed forest. It is closely associated with small streams, and only rarely strays from the immediate vicinity of these; they are not found along larger rivers. It is active at night, sitting on rocks or in rocky crevices, or on very steep cliffs alongside streams. It is presumed to breed by direct development.
Systems:Terrestrial; Freshwater

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): The major threat is probably habitat loss, due to agricultural development (including plantations, and the planting of illegal crops), logging, and human settlement. Pollution, resulting from the spraying of illegal crops, is also a significant threat.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: It is present in several protected areas in Colombia, including Parque Nacional Natural Farallones de Cali.
