Green Flying-Frog

Rhacophorus reinwardtii

Description:

Classified in Rhacophoridae (South-East Asia tree frogs) family. The key characteristics are the fully-webbed fingers and widening finger tips, called disc. The disc helps the frogs cling on the tree branches, shrubs, or bushes and the web is for gliding. This species is distinguished from other species of Rhacophoridae by its green colored dorsal, yellow or orange limbs, and purple or dark web.

Habitat:

Primary or secondary forest. Usually found near water sources or puddle.

Notes:

This picture was not taken on real habitat because this one is sampled species. After discussion and specimen identification, all of the samplings were released back.
