Tomato Frog - Dyscophus antongilii
Dyscophus antongilii (Microhylidae), is a Near Threatened species endemic to north-eastern Madagascar. Commonly named Tomato Frogs due to their red coloration and robust body, the males can reach up to 65 mm, and the females 105 mm.
The Tomato Frog is currently listed in the Appendix I of the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species, CITES, which implies a complete ban on trade. The placement of this frog in Appendix I was based on the fact that several decades ago large quantities of specimens were exported from Madagascar for the pet trade.
