Day Thirty-Four: Costa Rica

Day Thirty-Four: Costa Rica

Over the summer I created over 35 achievement badges for the Withings Health Mate fitness app.

Day thirty-four is Costa Rica.


“Costa Rica is considered to possess the highest density of biodiversity of any country worldwide. While encompassing just one third of a percent of Earth’s landmass, approximately the size of West Virginia, Costa Rica contains four percent of species estimated to exist on the planet. Hundreds of these species are endemic to Costa Rica, meaning they exist nowhere else on earth. These endemic species include frogs, snakes, lizards, finches, hummingbirds, gophers, mice, cichlids, and gobies among many more.

Costa Rica is home to around 175 amphibians, 85% of which are frogs. Notable frog species in Costa Rica include Red-eyed Tree Frog, a few species of Poison Dart Frogs, the semitransparent glassfrogs, and the large Smoky Jungle Frog.”
