Please punch me in the face if I ever post a #tbt ever again, but one time in high school I dressed up as a 70’s pimp? It was a simpler time.
Madagascar Tomato Frogs (Dyscophus antongilli)
- Maroantsetra, Madagascar
This is a rather large terrestrial microhylid that ranges along the northeastern coast of Madagascar from Antongil Bay south to Andevoranto. It occurs at elevations from sea level to 200 meters and breed in shallow pools, swamps, drainage ditches, and slow moving bodies of water.
This species is considered endangered as a result of deforestation and over-collecting for the pet trade, and is now listed on Appendix I of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). There are two other species of tomato frogs in Madagascar, D. guineti and D. insularis, neither of which are presently endangered.
The sewage system of the eastern coastal town of Maroansetra is one of the world’s best places for seeing Tomato Frogs in the wild. According to the locals, it is common there.
