Here are some frogs and lizards from lowland Sarawak. Due to time and health issues I couldn't successfully ID many of them, so maybe you could help. It's for a good cause - my ongoing education.

Harlequin Tree Frog, Rhacophorus pardalis
Image

No Eye Deer
Image

Another one
Image

Image

Image

Hylarana raniceps
Image

whatzit?
Image

???
Image

Toad.
Image

The always popular Takydromus septentrionalis
Image

Day gecko, Cnemaspis kendallii ... or is it?
Image

Image

Bronchocela cristatella. Sounds like a champagne-based cough syrup, but is actually one of the purdiest lizzerds around these parts. Sadly, they're really hard to spot, unless they Geronimo out of a tree in fear of some predator, like this one did. And then it even climbed right back up and posed for me!

Nice post Hans!

Some possible id's (not that I'm any good at this):

No Eye Deer could be Fejervarya cancrivora
The one under that, I'd say is a Rhacophorus sp. It looks like R. pardalis to me.

Some good Borneo amphibian id guides:

As always,Great stuff.
I will take a crack at some of the ID's
the 'No Eye Deer" is Fejervarya cancrivora

the treefrog below it is another R. pardalis

The "Whatzit" is a Limnonectes. I saw a few of these when I was down there and still haven't come to a consensus. The raised forward pointing "V" in the middle of the back makes me think L. finchi. The only problem is that they are only known from Sabah. was this one from Kubah? by any chance

the ??? is another Limnonectes. I don't see a tympanum and the eyes are a little dorsal so i would guess a boldly patterned L. kuhlii or possibly L. laticeps.

The Toad is Bufo (Ingerophrynus) divergens

Cheers

EW
