Cloaked Moss Frog cloaked

The Cloaked Moss Frog Theloderma palliatum was discovered by Australian Museum scientist Dr Jodi Rowley and colleagues at the University of Science - Ho Chi Minh City, the Institute of Ecology and Biological Resources and Vinh University. The species, known only from high-elevation forest on the Langbian Plateau in Vietnam, is named after its ability to change from a dull brownish colour to reveal this bold, high-contrast pattern.
