Spiny Warted Frog - Theloderma horridum Had initially thought it was a Toad in view of the warty look, this was a surprise and rare friend from the location.  They are supposedly rare as they tends to stay higher up in trees and lays their eggs in tree holes.<br />

    1. Thanks, Christine :)
      It was just earlier in March that JD Member, ChunXingWong was asking me if I see lots of frogs at my location and he was showing me a picture of this rare frog that he saw in Borneo recently. So, we were totally surprised that I found this one, and this could be a new documentation of the species on the island :D

    Check out this beauty! The Spiny Warted Frog (Theloderma horridum) is found in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand. Its natural habitat consists of moist lowland forests, in which it blends in fantastically thanks to its bark-mimicking skin. The combination of its camouflage and the frog's arboreal lifestyle make it a species that is rarely seen. And, sadly - it is threatened by habitat loss. {Spotted in Malaysia by Albert Kang} #JungleDragon #SpinyWartedFrog #Thelodermahorridum

  6. Today's Facebook post:

    Did you know that the week of May 1-7th has been designated as International Amphibian Week?? The aim is to bring awareness to these amazing creatures and their plight as they face habitat loss, pollution, disease, and ultimately species' decline.

    Amphibians include frogs, caecilians, and salamanders. They are fascinating, beautiful, diverse, and have important roles in their ecosystems. Take some time to educate yourself about these incredible creatures! #JungleDragon #amphibianweek2022 #amphibianweek
