How does a Malay frog disguise itself ?

Malay leaf frog (Eleutherodactylus) justifies its name! It is also known as the long-legged horned frog. This type of frog is large, its body length is 10-12 cm. Their colouring allows them to hide perfectly in the forest. This species lives mainly in the tropical forests of southern Thailand and the Malay Peninsula among fallen leaves. Invisibility among leaves is skillfully used for camouflage. These tailless amphibians can lie on the forest soil for a long time and wait for a victim to be caught suddenly. The diet of leafy frogs includes spiders, small rodents, lizards and other small frogs.
