Romer's Tree Frog The Romer's Tree Frog - Liuixalus romeri is endemic to Hong Kong and was previously only recorded in 4 outlying islands off Hong Kong including Chep Lap Kok Island.   As mitigation of the effects of airport construction on Chek Lap Kok, the Chek Lap Kok population was translocated to suitable sites on Hong Kong Island and the New Territories (including Tsiu Hang Special Area, Tai Lam Country Park and Tai Po Kau Nature Reserve). It occurs from sea level to 650m asl.  I found this at Tai Po Kau Nature Reserve. Frog,Hong Kong,Liuixalus romeri,Romers Tree Frog,Tree Frog Click/tap to enlarge PromotedSpecies introCountry intro
