Madagascar National Parks
Of a frog to another




Gaudy, of lively and iridescent colors, frogs unleash the passions for the biologists and the aficionados of herpetofauna. Madagascar has 146 species of amphibian, of small multicolored frogs. And 99% of these frogs that represent 145 species are endemic of Madagascar.

Diurnal or nocturnal, these frogs abound near wetlands, streams,  rivers, the ponds and lakes. The "Tomato frog» is one of the stars of the swamps. With the shape and the color… of a tomato, this species only exists in the vicinity of the Bay of Antongil.  It is valued by the collectors but its survival is threatened by the reduction of its natural habitat. The tomato frog is protected by  Washington convention, on the Annex 1 of the Convention in the international trade of the species of wild fauna and flora or
CITES.
