Tarahumara Frog
Rana tarahumarae
The Tarahumara Frog (Rana tarahumarae) is a rare and local frog of the Sonoran Desert of Mexico. It formerly occurred in extreme southern Arizona, but populations in the U.S. are apparently extirpated. Reintroductions have occurred in recent years, however. The photos here show a captive Tarahumara Frog at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson, Arizona, in April, 2003. These photos were taken with a Canon EOS 10D and EF 70-200 F/2.8 L IS lens and 2X extender.
