Mystery amphibian

Post by VarJack » Mon May 16, 2011 6:33 am

A mysterious amphibian, 10-15 cm in length, from a mangrove forest in Malaysian Borneo. There were lots of them and they were using their tails to propel themselves forward in small jumps.

Any idea about the species?

Thanks, it must have been a mudskipper. Never saw one before.
