The answer to this week’s frog or toad is TOAD. It is a Borean Rainbow Toad (Ansonia latidisca) from the family Bufonidae – the True Toads. Its obviously found in Borneo and is listed as endangered by the IUCN.

Best way to tell its a toad is the dry, warty skin. The parotoid gland is not large enough to be noticed. The members of the genus Ansonia all have a more slender body, and are often called the slender toads.
