Mantidactylus majori Ivohimanita Madagascar Frog

Ivohimanita Madagascar Frog (Mantidactylus majori)
After the first hour or so in Ranomafana, our local guide Theo had caught on to the idea that I wanted to see as many different types of lizards, snakes, and frogs as possible. When the trail got near a medium-sized stream, he told us to wait, clambered quickly down the steep streambank, waded out into the stream up to his knees or so, and pounced. With a big smile on his face, he emerged with this frog, which was willing to sit exposed on the trail only for a minute or so before leaping back towards the stream.

Here is a list of all the reptiles and frogs I saw on this 2007 trip to Madagascar.
