Hainan stream tree frogs love to sun themselves on rocks.
Amboli bush frogs - In amplexus
There were lots of Amboli bush frogs in the area we stayed in Agumbe. We were surrounded by loud calls.. But spotting them is a different story..
We found 3 pairs of Amboli bush frogs in amplexus. All of them were found on the ground.
The calling males were perched on leaves. 1 male was slowly approaching this pair in amplexus.
I found 1 male just observing another pair in amplexus from 3 inches away. He never made a move. Their agreement seemed to work ;-D
The female would occasionally move with the male on its back. But nothing much happened that night.
Rhacophorus pardalis (Harlequin tree frog) is a frog species that belongs to the family Rhacophoridae. The status of this species is least concern as categorized by the IUCN because of its wide distribution. It inhabits both primary and secondary rainforests and breeds near swampy pools. The major threat for this frog species is logging and prevention of further deforestation is the most recommended conservation measure. This species was observed during its breeding season as shown in the photo.
Hong Kong Whipping Frog 斑腿泛樹蛙 (Polypedates megacephalus) - 昨晚放工仍是絲絲細雨時，已見有兩三隻這中吸力超強的青蛙爬上兩米多高的圍場，似乎已意識到大水淹至! 記起十多年前搬入新界，每逢落雨佢地都在高奏情歌，現在已越來越少見到牠們，疏落的呼喚似是最後的哀號........
Thanks Macro Chan for identifying this
Wouldn't have found this beautiful frog if not for his calls... So well camouflaged, only the red webbing on his feet gave away him away.
He would stop calling when I was trying to find where he was. Then I had to wait for another 10 mins or so for him to resume his calls. Eventually i found him, deep inside the bush, beautifully camouflaged and at peace :-)
The Rhacophoridae are a family of frog species, which occur in tropical regions of Asia and Africa. They are commonly known as shrub frogs, or more ambiguously as "moss frogs" or "bush frogs". Some Rhacophoridae are called "tree frogs". Among the most spectacular members of this family are numerous "flying frogs".
