Chandor Frogs

12 New Frog Species have been discovered in India’s Western Ghats Western, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Goa and Maharashtra. All the new species are night frogs, which made the research projects more challenging. Six of the new species are already in a highly vulnerable state due to damage to their habitats. “The major threat to amphibians in India is massive habitat loss. Taking any conservation effort for amphibians will indirectly conserve several other important biodiversities of that area,” said one of the researchers.

IMO: We mentioned this matter some time ago and even published a photo of one of our attractive 'designer frogs'. Recently more photographs of some of these frogs have been published. Right now there are three frogs sitting happily in the well. They actually live in the well. They look exactly like number 7 on the list here. The area around here has been identified as one of the ten hottest biodiversity hotspots in the world.
