Buergeria – Buerger’s frogs

Masters of camouflage reside from Hainan (China) to Japan

Found across the length of China, Taiwan, and Japan, four species of this genus are currently designated as Vulnerable by the IUCN.

Increasing human activities in the areas of their habitat might further destabilize their population in the years to come.

These frogs inhabit mostly mountainous regions near streams or lakes and have webbing between their fingers to allow them to live in an aquatic habitat. Their diet is diverse, but most members are carnivorous, feeding on several insects such as crickets, cockroaches, and other arthropods.
