When I saw one of these hopping across the trail on my first night in Malaysia, I immediately realized that I didn't know what it was, and also that I had quite definitely not seen one before.
These frogs breed in water-filled tree holes My guide Kurt "Orion" G led me straight to this one, which was hanging out by one of these holes.
I wonder what is the evolutionary advantage of this color and pattern in the rainforest. The frogs draw my attention, which certainly doesn't help them, but perhaps to the eyes of their predators these frogs blend in somehow.
