Water Drop Frog

Raorchestes nerostagona

Description:

One rarity that only calls from high tree canopies, calls that echo exactly like a water drop. Since they never come down from the canopies, it was extremely difficult to photograph this while balancing high on a tree branch with a torch and camera. The gushing wind and lashing rains added another difficulty level. Got a video and this shot after almost two hours. Happy with the outcome after all that was put at stake. Here's the link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBlowBV9...

Habitat:

Rainforest and Evergreen forest of Agumbe. The forests of Agumbe is a part of the Western Ghats. The Western Ghats have an exceptionally high level of biological diversity including many endemic species. It is also recognized as one of the world’s eight hottest hotspots' of biological diversity, inscribed in the UNESCO World Natural Heritage sites list in July 2012

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!
