I wanted my own recordings for each and every coqui--but that is a physical impossibility since 3 of them are considered extinct. However, the ones I do get will replace those below with longer recordings. If the sound doesn't come on once you click it, you may have to download Quicktime off the net. Vista, for example doesn't recognize eeven the most common files and the only way to hear anything is to download third party software like Quicktime.
