Common Greenback frog (Rana erythraea)

The Common Greenback (Rana erythraea), is also known as Green Paddy Frog or Leaf Frog. These amphibians are mainly nocturnal, and are usually found clinging to shrubs or in puddles of water by small streams. Males prefer to perch on grass or reeds, while females are more often seen on banks. Rana erythraea range from Thailand and Indonesia to West Malaysia, Singapore, Java, Borneo, Sulawesi and the Philippines. Their habitat is moist lowland forests, freshwater lakes, and freshwater marshes. They are most common in disturbed freshwater habitats such as irrigation ditches and flooded rice fields.
