The Giant Monkey Frog (Phyllomedusa bicolor) makes its presence known by a resonant “honk” and the occasional merry-chortling sound made over forest pools. It is kept safe from all but humans by a potent neurotoxin in its mucus and moves slowly but surely as if knowing its chemical safeguards. Indigenous hunters have used these toxins in rituals believed to enhance their hunting abilities. Preferring healthy old forests with unpolluted pools, these quirky giants are quickly imperiled by gold mining, deforestation and degradation.
