Kirthisinghe’s Rock Frog(දුම්බර ගල් පර මැඩියා)


The Kirthisinghe’s rock frog is largely stream-dwelling, and adults are found in crevices, under boulders, and on other flat, wet surfaces in rocky hill streams of montane forest. Tadpoles are found on wet rock surfaces. Kirthisinghe’s rock frog is considered to be a rare species, and is declining due to water pollution by chemicals used in agriculture from surrounding tea and cardamom estates, the grazing of livestock, and disturbance by local tourism. It has been recorded in the Knuckles Forest Reserve, but there are currently no conservation actions ongoing for this species.
