Boana cinerascens — Rough-skinned Green Treefrog
Also known as:
Demerara Falls Treefrog, Glass Frog, Rough-skinned Green Glass Treefrog, Eye-ring Bush Frog
This species was placed in the large genus Hyla until a major revision of that genus in 2005. It is known as Hyla granosa in some older references. It was then placed in the genus Hypsiboas until 2017.
Their translucent skin in certain lighting conditions has caused these frogs to sometimes be referred to as "Glass Frogs", though they are not closely related to the Centrolenidae family of frogs that are also known as Glass Frogs.
This healthy-looking, full-sized treefrog was the proud possessor of only one eye. That certainly didn't seem to have damaged its prospects any.
