Tree frogs breeding

Despite a lack of rain recently, an amplexus pair of Common tree frogs (Polypedates megacephalus) crossed my path a couple of evenings ago. The only amplexus pair of frogs I have seen so far which indicates to me that these frogs have a longer breeding period than many of the other common amphibians on the island. That being said, after heavy rain at least four-five species of frog and toad can be heard calling all around.

  1. Hi Matt, as far as I am aware, the current thinking is that
    Polypedates leucomystax is found south of Prachuap Khiri Khan and P. megacephalus is found in the south.

  2. Thanks Ian, after only a month here I really don’t claim to be an expert, feel free to let me know of any other errors. Cheers, Matt
