Treefrog in the Borneo rainforest. Photo by Rhett A. Butler
For the month of December, I’ll be posting some of my favorite pictures from 2012. All of these photos were taken during the course of my reporting travels.
While most people think of frogs as harmless, to their prey they are highly-effective killing machines. This treefrog, like virtually all other frogs, is carnivorous, feeding on arthropods in the rainforest of Borneo. I haven’t yet identified the species — if anyone recognizes it, please let me know in the comments.
