Artist's Description

I came across these guys spot lighting for frogs with my grandson in the rice fields around Ubud, Bali. I thought they were the Ugly Cane Toad, Bufo marinus, which is an introduced species in Australia responsible for catastrophic environmental damage (all frog predators die from eating them and hey destroy native frogs). The next night I heard them calling and to my surprise it wasn’t at all like the easily recognised cane toad call! Once I realised my mistake they were cute instead of ugly and we were only too happy to include them in our shoot. Unknown species of Bufo but we are going for Bufo asper or melanostictus???

Taken with flash lights (2), handheld and flash.
