Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
Kei, your philosophy about wildlife is great!
Thanks Leuba, He is a gorgeous guy i agree!
Brilliant photos ! - he's a handsome froggie and your photos make him look so fresh and clean. His body looks beautifully streamlined - thanks for sharing this pic !
Hi Maria, yes i found it in a permanent wetland, that second shot in this series is actually the first photo i took of this specimen. And yes i most certainly put it back, i dont believe in keeping any wild animals longer than a day and displacing them from their original habitat, as that could disturb population dynamics and associated ecology. In fact i think trade in exotic species for pets is often treated irresponsibly, it has bad implications on indigenous fauna and flora with the exotics often outcompeting the natural species when they do escape (and this is more often than not). If one wants a "pretty" pet, keep it local or go travelling to see those species one is fond of. This is exactly why i like this site so much, i get to see whats out there. :)
nice series and cute with the book description; is the second photo where you found it (and put it back)?
