Unusual Toad

Postby richardlbong » Fri May 04, 2012 8:29 pm

Found this very funny looking toad this morning at a wetland reserve park. Have never seen anything like it. Looking at the face, it reminds me of a Pug. So I'll just call it Pug-face Toad for the time being until I get a proper ID.

Thanks, Lena. That was quick. This was shot at Pasir Ris, beneath the MRT track.

Just found out that this Bullfrog is common in Pasir Ris Park. :giggle:

Actually after a downpour, I would frequently hear a Banded Bullfrog symphony from the field opposite my house resembling the "mournful bellow of cattle". Would love for them to one day make their way across the road to my house! :D
