Thee Polyvinyl Craftsmen Bornean Blue-Toed Tree Frog Expedition 2011

This is what our 2 week trek is all about, we're going up the Rajang river in search of this little fellow, the Bornean blue-toed tree frog. It's the highest tree dwelling frog in the world and only comes down out of the canopy to the rain forest floor for two weeks a year to breed. It is the only known frog that doesn't produce tadpoles but gives birth to tiny froglets in burrows it digs in the earth around the trees it inhabits. Fascinating stuff, hopefully we'll post some photos here. Taking the laptop loaded with enough tunes that we should be able to post a song every day if we can get a signal.
