Two frog cards from Costa Rica

Here are two nice pre-stamped cards issued by the postal administration of Costa Rica that I have just purchased for my frog collection. They are part of a set of seven touristic cards that were issued on the 17th of March picturing endangered species or natural reserves of Costa Rica.
The first card pictures a type of poison frog. These types of frogs have always a very bright color in order to warn their predators that they are toxic!

The second card pictures the red-eyed tree frog with it nice colors.

On both cards a “stamp” is printed re-using the design of the card. These two items are really a nice addition to my collection.




Just to be complete let me share with you an image of the five other cards that are in the set.
