The Sehuencas water frog is endemic to Bolivia and was first described in 1998. Sehuencas water frogs (Telmatobius yuracare) live only in the Bolivian mountain cloud forests, where the climate is moist and cool.And that’s where researchers found the five. The Sehuencas water frog is a fully aquatic frog that was once abundant on the bottom of small streams or rivers, and in ponds in montane cloud forest of Bolivia. Unfortunately, this frog’s native habitat also provides the ideal conditions for the growth of a fungal infection with an ungainly name: chytridiomycosis (Kih-TRIH-dee-oh-my-KOH-sis).
It is entirely aquatic and only found in the Lake Titicaca basin, including rivers that flow into it and smaller connected lakes like Arapa, Lagunillas and Saracocha, in the Andean highlands of Bolivia and Peru. La Paz: The fate of a species may just rest on this love story.

Romeo is a Sehuencas Water Frog (Telmatobius yuracare), an aquatic frog species only found in Bolivia,and was thought to be the last of his species. The frog’s profile links to a donation page, which is part of a campaign to raise $15,000 to help biologists search areas where Sehuencas water frogs were once plentiful. The Sehuencas Water Frog is previously known from fewer than 10 locations, but was once found in abundance as tadpoles on the bottom of small streams of the montane cloud forest or the Bolivian Yungas forest.
Telmatobius culeus, commonly known as the Titicaca water frog, is a medium-large to very large and critically endangered species of frog in the family Telmatobiidae. He has been alone in the Museo de Historia Natural Alcide d’Orbigny in Bolivia for 10 years.
