  • Garden - Hotel Bougainvillea, Costa Rica
    water and nutrients Tank bromeliads which are the most common have a funnel in the center of a rosette of leaves in order to collect rain water Air bromeliads tillandsioideae have wire like roots which attach themselves for support to trees other plants or wood Frogs Measuring no more than two to three inches 6 7 cms in length the so called monkey frogs used to be found frequently in local coffee plantations The coffee frog has a green back and orange colored belly with a sky blue stripe and yellow eyes One distinguishing feature of the monkey frog is its webbed feet and suction toes which allow them to climb trees and move easily on slippery surfaces like wet leaves and lily pads This ability to climb is important because after they mate they deposit the eggs on leaves on branches that hang over the water When it rains the hatching larvae slide down and fall into the water below The baby frogs are protected in the Bougainvillea ponds feeding from the abundant insects present in the gardens The Agalychnisannae frogs are able to jump but seldom do so Instead they walk on twigs and tree leaves with a gait similar to that of monkeys That is why they are sometimes called monkey frogs The Importance of Providing Habitat for Frogs Dr Heinz Hoffman Phytopathologist Frogs origins go back many million years and they have survived and developed Fossilized remains of frogs which lived in the Jurassic period some 150 million years ago have been found They were descendants of ancient amphibians originating 350 million years ago Nevertheless they are delicate So any substantial change in the environment can mean their rapid extinction The way of life of frogs and toads is incredibly complex Their reproductive relations and the care of their eggs are strongly related to their specific environment Not all frogs lay their eggs only in water and go away as people commonly think Males of certain species wrap themselves in strings of eggs and carry them around until they are ready to take them into the water Other species lay their eggs in protected but dry caves After that they have to moisten them and take the newborn larvae to adequate water areas During the eighties in Australia two varieties of frogs were discovered which swallow their eggs and suspend the acid production in the stomach so that it functions as an analog uterus The young frogs would be born out of the mouth of the mother As soon as this fact became known these frogs disappeared and have never been found again Some of the brightly colored frogs in Costa Rica have suffered the same fate Nowadays you may see only the sad remains of these frogs in museums preserved in formaldehyde Important crops A section of Hotel Bougainvillea s gardens has been set aside to showcase some of the most well known crops which have sustained Costa Rica and brought it wealth and prosperity
