Fire Toad

Leptophryne cruentata


Also known as the Bleeding Toad, this amphibian is critically endangered (IUCN list) and is endemic to West Java.


montane rainforest


I spotted this toad on a tree just off the walkway in Gunung Gede national park. The same toad is featured on the pamphlet for the park. Thanks to Jason Alexander for help in finding the latin name.

Thanks for SOTD and all the kind comments everyone. I had no idea when I spotted this that it was such a significant find. Hopefully some of my other spottings turn out to rare as well.
