Cute little Malayan Horned Frog (Megophrys nasuta). My second M. nasuta. Only 1" from snout to vent, as opposed to the first one which was 5" SVL! Selangor, Malaysia.
There is a bonus dipteran captured in this scene.

I like log climbing. It's very very challenging! Red-sided Sticky Frog (Kalophrynus pleurostigma). Night herping, Selangor, Malaysia.
