This is a lesser Antillean

This is a lesser Antillean whistling frog (Eleutherodactylus johnstonei). Go on admit it your impressed I could identify this!

Actually there are only three frogs on St Lucia, one is the big, fat cane toad, another is a tree frog with a red nose and this one.

If you add an identification I'll agree to it.

Postings

I tend not to post identifications rather I recommend others to do it. The reason is, as I have 'expert' status on iSpot I don't gain 'experience points' for correct observations; I've shot straight to the top, so to speak.

However, if you add an identification and I agree with it then the observation is corroborated and you get the 'points' and one of those little logo things next to your name. My thinking is, even if you could not identify this one you will now know what to look for next time, so you have earned the 'point'.

I hope you understand what I'm trying to say because I'm not sure I do! Read the article in the link below, it will hopefully explain better than I.
