Rough Guardian Frog (Limnonectes finchi) Rough Guardian Frog (Limnonectes finchi)
Limnonectes finchi is one of the two Borneo species called "guardian frogs" because the male guards the eggs, which are laid on land, until they hatch. Then the little tadpoles mount onto the back of the male, who carries them to nearby water. (The other such frog in Borneo is Limnonectes palavanensis, the Smooth Guardian Frog.)
