Highlands biological STN NC
Tried to turn over a log and accidentally pulled out a huge piece of bark. About 20 of them fell out but I ended up catching 5 and later let them go.
A brown colored frog in a small stream, measuring 4 or 5 cm long with dark brown bands and orange colored patches.
Not sure about this ID, but these medium to large sized Mantidactylus spp. were fairly common on the road leading to Ankaratra, in and near irrigation and rice paddies around a small village. It looks different than M. curtus on the massif.
Probably not really M. curtus but some yet to be described species
