Anamalai Gliding Frog

Rhacophorus pseudomalabaricus


The Anamalai Gliding Frog is critically endangered due to habitat loss and is endemic to the Anamalai region in the Western Ghats. It has a black-marbled back and was mistaken for the Malabar Gliding Frog - Rhacophorus malabaricus for a long time. Like many moss frogs, it builds foam nests above small pools of water, into which the tadpoles drop down after hatching.


It is found in the lower canopy and understory of tropical moist evergreen forests.
