Lat Krabang, Thailand. February 23, 2016.
Walking along a raised sidewalk near the rice fields at night, we encountered a Kaloula, which promptly hopped off the walkway into the vegetation below. I could only manage a photo with the frog’s head blocked by plant material. I thought we might see another on our nocturnal walks, but none appeared, and I thought I had blown my only shot at this species. Walking back from dinner on our last night in Lat Krabang, we passed over a canal that cut through town, and looking over the side of the bridge, I spotted a Kaloula perched on a tree stump, about five feet off the ground. It wasn’t my idea of an ideal encounter, but you take what you can get sometimes.
