Bleeding Toad

Leptophryne cruentata Tschudi or bleeding toad is small-sized frog (adult male 20-30 mm, adult female 25-40 mm) with a small paratoid gland and often unclear. Black colored with red and yellow sports, the toad has no bony groove in the head. This endemic toad to West Java mountainous area was found abundantly in Cibodas trail (Mount Gede, Pangrango National Park) during the 1960's. Recent surveys found the number has declined sharply in contrast to other species. Although found mostly in protected areas, the population declining dues to several factors such as visitor disturbances, volcanic activities and diseases. Currently, this frog is included in the IUCN Red List as Critically Endangered, but yet protected under Indonesian law.

In its natural habitat, the plant may be subject to periods, when the water dry up it forms roots at the surface to help it survive. Found in tropical areas, this species can be found in pools, marshes and rivers throughout southern Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia.
