The Eyes  A macro image of  the one of the most beautiful eyes of the animal world. This particular frog was on my wish list ever since i saw a photo in 2013.  A critically endangered species, these frogs are very rare and have a very unique breeding behavior. They breed inside a reed. They only come out to feed. It was very tough finding and photographing it.  Raorchestes chalazodes,amphibian,critically endangered,endemic,frog,india,ochlandrae,reed frog Click/tap to enlarge Promoted

''Raorchestes chalazodes'' is a species of frog in the Rhacophoridae family. It is endemic to the Western Ghats of India. The specific name ''chalazodes'' is composed of the Greek word ''chalaza'' meaning grain and ''odes'' for the derived adjective, reflecting white granulation of the body. Using 'chalazodes' in the common name, as if it were a proper noun, is probably a misinterpretation.
