Resumen

Defensive behaviour in amphibians is diverse, exhibiting a variety of postures and strategies to avoid a predation event. Over the course of fieldwork conducted in southern Minas Gerais, Brazil, we recorded defensive behaviours for Aplastodiscus leucopygius, a forest-associated species. Herein we report on these behaviours and discuss them in relation to defensive behaviours recorded for other closely related species in the genus Aplastodiscus. We report on three general defensive behaviours for A. leucopygius for the first time and two new behaviours for the genus Aplastodiscus.
