The Smith’s Litter Frog or Leptobrachium smithi is found in Southeast Asia, named in honour of Malcolm Arthur Smith, one of the early herpers to study the amphibians of Thailand.

It was a fantastic experience to me finding this lovely frog and it was so friendly. Being there during the night is another thing, one must be careful where to step, crawl, and lie down when taking photographs of this lovely frog with pretty fantastic eyes.

I was away for the whole week getting plans in motion and during the nights I went herping and it was a great experience. I can’t really believe how tired I was every night as during the day I would also to the wild and take photographs and during the night we end almost midnight. Taking a shower was really a challenge. Look at the freaken lovely eye, orange, it is so beautiful.

Thanks a lot Suriyan Tong Jantra for having me and Wongsathit Intawong for asking him to work with me.
