Open Access
In September 2008 we registered the frog Geobatrachus walkeri at ~ 3500 m elevation in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, an isolated mountain range in the Caribbean Colombian, South America. Our record expands the knowledge of the altitudinal distribution of this species on 700 m and constitutes the first observation in páramo habitat.
