A ranger marsupial frog (Gastrotheca orophylax) at Centro Jambatu in Quito, Ecuador. This animal is originally from Santa Barbara, Sucumbios Province, Ecuador. This species is listed as vulnerable by IUCN. The population is affected due to habitat destruction, such as agriculture, pesticide use, pine and eucalyptus forest plantations. Like all members of the Gastrotheca genus, females of this species have a pouch on their backs from which fully developed froglets emerge.
