Description

We took a mokoro ride through the papyrus and our guide found this frog. He called it a "painted reed frog" but other images on this site more closely match Kachalola Reed Frog.

Description

I don't know the species of this little green tree frog, but it was on our gate so I took a picture. Isn't it beautiful? I know there are frogs like this around, but never see them. I assume it's because they're green and so is practically everything else. It really pops out against the red of our gate though.
I added a third photo I took with my phone showing the relatively small size compared to my finger.
