This week I am joined once again by Josh Allen. Josh has years of experience as a guide and naturalist in Peru, and he has a special interest in poison frogs. We discuss some of the impacts that habitat destruction and gold mining have on Peruvian Dendrobatids within the Cordillera Sira, his encounters with some of the rarer species of ranitomeya, and how to identify suitable wild ranitomeya habitat. We also talk about the importance that a certain type of soil plays in the lives of wild poison frogs and the ultra rare and habitat-specific species - Excidobates mysteriosus.
