"You looking at me?" Despite its oh-so-angry appearance, this frog just relied on its camouflage to such an extent that I could take photos from a couple of inches away and it never even twitched.

  1. A very valuable addition. I see many of these frogs in specialized communities across the web, yet we had few over here. Not only a great species, also an incredible photo showing a great closeup with also a bit of habitat. Posted 7 months ago
    1. The similar species Megophrys nasuta is more well-known and was already on JungleDragon. I saw one of those as well, but I like to beef up the species diversity of JungleDragon whenever possible. Posted 7 months ago
      1. Which is great, but mind you: photos of species already on the site are equally welcome :) Posted 7 months ago
        1. Certainly! Posted 7 months ago

The Perak horned toad, also Perak spadefoot toad or Malayan horned frog is a species of amphibian in the Megophryidae family found in Peninsular Malaysia and Thailand, and possibly in Indonesia. Its common name refers to its type locality, Bukit Besar in Perak state, Malaysia.

Some authorities place all Xenophrys species into the genus Megophrys.
