Bornean Rainbow Toad

This colourful beauty has just recently been spotted in a remote area of Borneo for the first time in nearly 90 years. These toads are arboreal, dwelling at high altitude and their colourful skin permits camouflage against mossy trees. Scientists are hoping to become better acquainted with these tiny 2-inch creatures in the years to come. More information can be found here. More information about lost amphibians may be found here.
