Carchi Andes Toad
Its native habitat range has been altered and destroyed for logging and mining activities as well as agricultural developments.
The Carchi Andes Toad is a native amphibian of the western Andes Mountains. It can only be found in three locations: the Nariño Department in Colombia as well as two localities in the Carchi Province in Ecuador.
An adult male and female have measurements of 38mm and 59 mm, respectively. A single specimen was taken from a small creek within a forest environment about 1,180-1,500 above sea level. The scarcity in number is attributed to pollution and destruction of its habitat due to crop controlling and other agriculture-related activities.
