2- Anomaloglossus beebei :
Anomaloglossus beebei (common names: Beebe's rocket frog, golden rocket frog) is a species of frog in the Aromobatidae family. It is endemic to Guyana and only found on the Kaieteur Plateau, in the eastern edge of them Pacaraima Mountains. Recently, it has also been found on Mount Ayanganna.
This frog inhabits the tank of the giant bromeliad Brocchinia micrantha. Tadpoles live in small amounts of water trapped in the leaf axils. It is an opportunistic sit and wait predator whose diet includes small arthropods, mosquitos, and midges.
Anomaloglossus beebei has been assessed as being a vulnerable species because its range is small (<20 km²) and its habitat is slowly being lost by expanding forests.
