Wallace's flying frog

Wallace's flying frog (Rhacophorus nigropalmatus) is a moss frog found in tropical southeastern Asia. It is named after the British naturalist Alfred R. Wallace, who collected the first known specimen of the species. It lives almost exclusively in trees, and when threatened, or in search of prey, will leap from a branch and splay its four webbed feet; the membranes between its toes and the loose skin flaps on its sides catch the air as it falls, helping it to glide. This individual was photographed in Khao Sok National Park, Thailand.
