The Boettger's Colombian tree frog (Dendropsophus columbianus) is a frog that lives in Colombia. Scientists have seen it between 950 and 2300 meters above sea level.[1][2]

Scientists have seen this frog in areas that used to be cloud forests before human beings changed them. They have seen the frog hiding in agave plants during the day and by pools of water at night.[2]
