|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||Solís, F., Ibáñez, R., Santos-Barrera, G., Jungfer, K., Renjifo, J. & Bolaños, F.|
|Reviewer(s):||Stuart, S.N., Chanson, J.S., Cox, N.A. & Young, B.E.|
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
|Range Description:||This species is found on the Atlantic slopes and lowlands from southern Veracruz and northern Oaxaca in Mexico, south-eastward to northern Honduras and continuing on to the Caribbean slope to Panama. There is also an isolated record from the Cartagena Botanic Garden in northern Colombia. Its altitudinal range is from sea level up to 1,250m.|

|Population:||This is generally considered to be an abundant species.|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This species inhabits tropical lowland and montane forest, where there is a continuous forest cover. The presence of temporary or permanent ponds is important for its reproduction. It can live in secondary forest, and even very heavily degraded areas as long as there is a tree close to a pond (Federico Bolaños pers. comm.). It does well in areas where there has been selective logging.|
|Major Threat(s):||This species is threatened by habitat loss by the destruction of natural forests although it is known to survive in places with a degree of anthropogenic alteration. It is also recorded within the pet trade.|
|Conservation Actions:||It is protected by many parks throughout its range. It is listed on CITES Appendix II.|
