Bicolored Frog (Clinotarsus curtipes or Rana curtipes) This is a Near Threatened species of frog that is endemic to the Western Ghats in South-West India. I’ve always seen it under rich rainforest canopy in the leaf litter where its camouflage makes it difficult to spot…unless it moves.   Photographed in Agumbe in June 2012
