Malaysian Skipper Frog

A Black-spotted Skipper (Staurois guttatus) from Malaysian Borneo. A very pretty species that lives around clean forest streams in Borneo, they have quite powerful legs and can be difficult to approach as they will use them to launch themselves away at the slightest sign of danger. Unfortunately these long legs cannot save it from the deforestation that threatens many of Borneo's amphibian species.
