Megophrys nasuta

Microhyla ornata

Rana catesbeiana

Rana japonica

Rana nigromaculata (secret fig.)

Rhacophorus arboreus

It's a neat set--Yujin doesn't get enough love in my opinion. Although it is funny that the flying frog Rhacophorus isn't one of the ones posed on a tree or in leaping/flying pose.

Those are nice! How big are they?


It's an interesting set of species-  a mix of Japanese natives and popular pets.  The American bullfrog doesn't seem to fit either category.  I guess it's so well-established in Japan that they're treating it as an honorary native.


Not all the Rhacophorus are gliders- I think that's one of the non-gliding species.  It would be nice to see an R. nigropalmatus or similar in parachute pose!

they are Kaiyodo sized, about 1.5" to 3" (the bullfrog is the biggest and heaviest).

Like this?


It's the Colorata Rhacophorus reinwardtii. I've always know the genus overall as flying tree frogs--still seems unusual to me that they wouldn't have done a glider instead.

that colorata frog is much bigger, judging from the snout to vent measurement at almost 3 inches.

Oh yeah, the set is all over the place in terms of sizes--that is one of the bigger ones.
