Checked out the other photos of it. Second thoughts, maybe I'm wrong. Unusual looking besti., do you know know which morph exactly? Lovely frog.

No, sorry... I'm pretty sure it's this species. They're all over on the island.

Great shot. But I'm fairly certain this isn't Oophaga pumilio. It looks like a morph of Oophaga sylvatica, typical of that "Koi fish" red/white markings.
