[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Well, in this case Golaith won!

The Banded Bullfrog (Kaloula pulchra) is very similar to the Brown Bullfrog (K. baleata) in both appearance and habits. (See my previous posts) It can be recognized from the latter by the wide yellow band on its sides and by its slightly bigger size.

This species is said to be a recent introduction in Borneo and is a frog of human settlements living under rubbish heaps and other debris in town and cities. They emerge in big numbers after heavy rains to form large noisy breeding groups in flooded drains and ponds. Males inflate themselves into balls as they calls while floating on the water surface.

Ants, as my photo shows, are their almost exclusive food.
