The basics:
The Long-nosed Horned Frog is large and distinctive-looking frog which is native to rain forests in southern Thailand and the Malaysian peninsula. Its head and body have a leaf-like appearance, and it is a forest floor ambush hunter which waits for insects, snails to come within striking distance.

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), the wild population is listed as being of Least Concern, though "The species is harvested for the national and international pet trade, which might affect local populations."
