Brachytarsophrys feae Wikipedia
Brachytarsophrys feae are large frogs: males grow to about 96 mm (3.8 in) and females to about 101 mm (4.0 in) in snout-vent length. Tadpoles are small in comparison, about 39 mm (1.5 in) in length.
Male Brachytarsophrys feae appear to be territorial. Their advertisement call is loud and can be likened to barking. Limited data suggest that chorusing occurs only in rainy nights; otherwise males remain hidden in their stream-side burrows.
Its natural habitats are evergreen broadleaf forest and streams; it breeds in streams. It is threatened by habitat loss caused by dams and power plants, and it is also collected for consumption.
