Paper Summary:

This article details sleeping site fidelity in three species within the Sani Reserve, Ecuador. The authors document consistent use of sleeping sites in the Amazon Forest Dragon (Enyalioides laticeps) which likes to “hug” thin sticks, the Slender Anole (Anolis fuscoauratus), which also favours thin sticks, and the Crested Forest Toad (Rhinella margaritifera) which favours large, flat leaves.
