Microhyla picta - Endemic frog from Vietnam

Post by Evgeny Kotelevsky » January 11th, 2017, 9:22 am

In June 2016 me and my wife visited Vietnam for two weeks. Last days of our trip we spent in Phan Thiet. We used to take a walk along the beach each night before going to sleep. One night I found what I'd never expected to find - Microhyla picta. This frog is not only endemic, but it is also very rare! It inhabits a small coastal area from Phan Thiet to Vung Tau. That night I found two specimen slightly different in coloration.
