Not a Hong Kong cascade frog....

oh no, that would be small, brown and blotchy....this is the big, marvellous and green GREEN CASCADE FROG. Rana Livida.

Very common in Hong Kong. This one lived around our flower pots and small pond on the Peak.

Also known as the Malodorous Frog as it can exude a milky secretion when threatened, and this has a very pungent smell, like crushed garlic, (i'm sure the French are licking their lips), but this is actually toxic and caustic.
