Hyperolius swynnertoni form Broadleyi

Recent literature has split up the variable species H. marmoratus and this one has for the moment become H. swynnertoni. It is not unlikely that further research may still separate this form into a distinct species.

Scientists identified the world's smallest frog in Bornea. For years, scientists have mistaken it for a juvenile frog of a different species.

Male poison arrow frog (Dendrobates macero)

Walking around at 4:30 in the morning has its advantages. This beautiful frog was found calling from an elevated perch on a fern. Relatively common, I saw several of these whenever I passed riparians on the trail. Found during a night hike in Pantiacolla midlevel rainforest, Manu national park, Peru.

tokay gecko.


Found at snuh, but I can't locate a primary source - or even whether this is a real lizard, or a CG-enhanced one. A hat-tip to Julie for (quickly!) identifying this as a Tokay gecko. With that lead I found several pix at Flickr, but haven't located the photographer to credit this particular one. What a remarkable creature!
