Where does the Leptolax live?

Leptolax is a genus of frogs in the family Megophryidae.

They are also known as Asian toads or spadefoot toads.

They are found in Southeast Asia, from southern China to Indonesia and the Philippines.

One of the most well-known species of Leptolax is Leptolalax pelodytoides, which is also called the Thao Asian toad, the Karin metacarpal-tubercled toad, and many other common names.

It is a large-sized Leptolalax, with males measuring 28–32 mm and females 36–38 mm in snout-vent length.

Its back is brown with indistinct darker outline on warts and foldings and sides are with large dark blackish spots.

Leptolalax pelodytoides is known with reasonable certainty only from near its type locality, the Karen Hills region in the Kayah State, eastern Myanmar.

It lives in evergreen forests, near streams or ponds.

It is active at night, and feeds on insects and other small invertebrates.

It breeds in the rainy season, and lays eggs in foam nests attached to rocks or vegetation near the water.

The tadpoles develop in the water and metamorphose into froglets after about two months.

Leptolalax pelodytoides is considered to be a least concern species by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, because it has a wide distribution and is not threatened by habitat loss or overexploitation.

However, it may face some threats from pollution, disease, or invasive species in the future.
