Malayan Horned Frog (Megophrys nasuta) by melvynyeo Malayan Horned Frog (Megophrys nasuta) by melvynyeo
Quote [link]

A forest specialist, the Malayan Horned Frog has remarkable camouflage; its colour and form mimicking the leaf litter to be found on the forest floor. Unless the frog moves to snatch some unwary prey, it is unlikely to be seen.

Its distinctive shape includes a large head and wide mouth, and sharply pointed protuberances above each eye. Its call is a toad-like 'honk' and it feeds on forest floor invertebrates.

The species ranges from southern Thailand and Peninsular Malaysia to Singapore, Sumatra and Borneo.
