The Asian Giant Toad or Phrynoidis asper is also called the River Toad, is large and common in Thailand, especially near waterfalls, rivers, forest floors. It is also a native of Southeast Asia and this is one of the biggest I found.

We found it, together with Suriyan Tong Jantra, in between the big roots of a big tree pretending to be something else. it did not move a muscle for me to take this photograph. Nevertheless, I used my telephoto lens in order for me not to frighten it. The frame was full and it was awesome to be at eye level with this lovely creation.
