Malayan Horned Toad - a most magnificent animal

Malayan Horned Toad - a most magnificent animal

I was filming in Malaysia. In the rainforest the distinctive honking call of a Malayan horned toad is the only thing that betrays its disguise. Once heard, you must slowly move towards the sound, but if it spots you the game is on. The frog goes silent, sits still and waits. Get too close and it will suddenly jump and dive into the leaf litter never to be seen again. To find a frog disguised as a leaf can take some time. #BBC #EarthOnLocation #Malaysia #Frog #Toad #Amphibian #Camouflage #Wildlife #Evolution #Rainforest
