Congrats Vipin, this amazing little gem was chosen as spotting of the day!

"This stunningly colored Winged Gliding Frog, in today's spotting of the day, is unfortunately endangered. Endemic to two small areas of the southern Western Ghats of India, we hope the future is brighter for these beautiful gems. The natural habitat for the endangered Winged Gliding Frog is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, intermittent freshwater marshes and plantations of the Western Ghats in India. It is one of the few anuran amphibians in India that constructs its nest above the ground using leaves. Their evolution is seen as an adaptation to life in the trees. They have the ability to glide with their enlarged hands and feet, full webbing between all fingers and toes and lateral skin flaps on their arms and legs."
