The Tiny beauty At just around 1.5cm it is the smallest and the most colorful night frog i have ever come across. It is an endemic and endangered species.<br />
<br />
There were calling from all around.The frogs being small and resting under leaf litter and rocks it was very difficult to see one. All i could do is listen to<br />
their calls. I didn&#039;t want to disturb the leaf litter and search, as there were chances of presence of eggs.<br />
<br />
Then after about 20 minutes of skimming the surface, this tiny chap showed himself!! It was the only specimen i could see. After taking some images left the place in search of other gems!!<br />

    I can relate to how cool such findings are, found a few small and well camouflaged ones in the north of Madagascar:
