Pied Warty Frog
This species is found in Thailand, but not within Bangkok itself
English name: Pied Warty Frog (aka “Bird Poop Frog”, “Warty Tree Frog”, “Hill Garden Bug-eyed Frog”)
Scientific name: Theloderma asperum
Thai name: Pad ta-poom lek
note: Due to one of its popular names and its unique coloration, many people believe that this frog mimics bird-poop. However, scientists who study the frog believe that it is actually a tree-bark mimic, meant to blend into the tree-bark it lives on and the fungus that covers the bark.
