Dyscophus antongilii Tomato Frog

Tomato Frog (Dyscophus antongilii)
This aptly-named frog is large and squat and bright red. It's also highly endangered, with a very restricted habitat that runs right through the town of Maroantsetra. The one we saw in "the wild" was living under someone's trash can. The one in the picture is from the Mandraka Reptile Farm on the road between the capital city of Antananarivo and Perinét.
