Litter Toad (Rhaebo haematiticus)

The Litter Toad (or Leaf-Litter Toad as it is called sometimes) is a species of true toads that bears a dead-leaf pattern on its skin, concealing it from most predators when they lie motionless in tree bark or the ground. Furthermore, their lifestyle is nocturnal, so during the day they don’t move much, unless spooked. They rely on that camouflage to be safe, even around streams, where their dull colors can match the colors of some rocks.
