Guibemantis pulcher — Tsarafidy Madagascar Frog
Some other names for this species:
Malagasy Glass Frog
This is one of a group of about five closely related frog species that all live almost entirely among the spiky fronds of plants in the genus Pandanus. Of the species we saw, this was clearly the most beautiful. (The other species we saw were G. bicalcaratus and G. albolineatus.)
Here is a list of all the reptiles and frogs I saw on this trip to Madagascar.
