Amboli Bush Frog

Pseudophilautus amboli

Description:

We were walking around the rainforest at Kalinga research station in search for nocturnal creatures, when the rare Amboli bush frog was giving out loud vocals during heavy monsoon. This was the mating season, and we saw the male re-appear at the same dry spot next to the hut every night.

Habitat:

Western Ghats of southern Maharashtra, Goa and Karnataka. Areas with very heavy rainfall, evergreen forests. Arboreal, prefer branches and low trees.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated Varrun!

Under Habitat, as per our guidelines please describe the actual habitat where the spotting was made. For more information:

Hello Varrun and Welcome to the Project Noah community!
We hope you like the website as much as we do. There are many aspects to the site and community. The best way to get started is to read the FAQs at http://www.projectnoah.org/faq where you can find all the tips, advice and "rules" of Project Noah. You, like the rest of the community, will be able to suggest IDs for species that you know (but that have not been identified), and make useful or encouraging comments on other users' spottings (and they on yours).
There are also "missions" you can join and add spottings to. See http://www.projectnoah.org/missions . A mission you should join is the http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/2165... to chose the best wild photo of 2018,only the spottings added to that mission are eligible.Note that most missions are "local". Be sure not to add a spotting to a mission that was outside of mission boundaries or theme :) Each mission has a map you may consult showing its range. We also maintain a blog archive http://blog.projectnoah.org/ where we have posted previous articles from specialists from different geographical areas and categories of spottings, as well as wildlife "adventures".
So enjoy yourself, share, communicate, learn. See you around :)
