Malaysia (Peninsular Malaysia)
The Lowland grainy frog occurs in lowland dipterocarp rainforests and associated bamboo stands in Malaysia (Kiew 1984, Manthey and Grossmann 1997). This species of frog cannot tolerate disturbance to their habitat (Malaysia Red List Assessment Workshop January 2018). This species breeds by larval development, and reproduction sites include water-filled bamboo stumps and other cavities.
The Lowland Grainy Frog is endangered in #Malaysia due to #pollution and run-off from #palmoil #deforestation. There is no known conservation in place. You can support this beautiful frog with a #Boycott4Wildlife on brands responsible for #deforestationTweet
They are also threatened by infrastructure development, including expanding human settlements, commercial and industrial areas, and road construction.
