Missing species media in API?

I have noticed that some species (e.g. Anaxyrus compactilis, species key 2422903) don’t seem to have any media returned by the API (https://api.gbif.org/v1/species/2422903/media) although the species webpage itself appears to have plenty of media: Anaxyrus compactilis (Wiegmann, 1833)

Is this a bug, or there is an intentional difference in the media between the API and the website?

Many thanks,

Hi @neil,

There are two types of images/media that can be found on Species pages:

Note that image licenses aren’t always open. Please check that the license of the images before using them and don’t forget to cite them.

Super helpful. Thank you very much.
