a field guide to the planet - by Damon Ramsey
Frogs love it hot and wet, and that's what they get in the jungle of tropical Asia...
Megophrys nasuta, 'Malaysian Horned Frog', 'Long-nosed Horned Frog'. A large frog, with projections above the eyes. One of the most distinct and easily identifiable species in tropical Asia.
Phrynoidis asper, 'Giant River Toad'.
possibly Kaloula pulchra, 'Asian Painted Frog', 'Banded Bull-frog', 'Rice Frog'. Dark brown back, pale underside and lighter brown or salmon blotchy stripe along side. Common. Known as the 'chubby frog' in the pet trade. Found in forest and on edge into rice fields and villages through mainland south-east Asia.
Thinking of travelling again after everything settles down? The first expedition I am booked to work on after the virus is Micronesia, New Guinea & Indonesia in 2021 with Silversea.
