Photos taken on February 21, 2006 in the Reserva Costera Valdiviana, Chile, by Lois and Don Porter. The Darwin's Frog ( Rhinoderma darwinii http://www.britannica.com/eb/article-9029410?tocId=9029410) and the large snail ( Macrocyclis peruvianus common name: Forest Snail; Nombre Común: Caracol Negro; Caracol Vaca; Caracol Gigante; Caracol del Bosque) http://www.bio.puc.cl/caseb/casebpdf/cecilia.pdf ) were found by our guide, Erik Inostroza, on our walk in the Alerce Sector of the reserve. We owe Erik our thanks for a delightful excursion. The images are copyright 2006 by Don Porter and Lois Porter, as noted in the metadata.
