About Duttaphrynus Melanostictus:
Duttaphrynus melanostictus is commonly called Asian common toad, Asian black-spined toad, Asian toad, black-spectacled toad, common Sunda toad, and Javanese toad.
It is probably a complex of more than one true toad species that is widely distributed in South and Southeast Asia.
The species grows to about 20 cm (8 in) long. Asian common toads breed during the monsoon, and their tadpoles are black. Young toads may be seen in large numbers after monsoon rains finish.
Ecology and behaviour:
Asian common toads breed in still and slow-flowing rivers and temporary and permanent ponds and pools.
Adults are terrestrial and may be found under ground cover such as rocks, leaf litter, and logs, and are also associated with human habitations.
The larvae are found in still and slow-moving waterbodies.
They are often seen at night under street lamps, especially when winged termites swarm.
They have been noted to feed on a wide range of invertebrates, including scorpions.
Tadpoles grown in sibling groups metamorphosed faster than those that were kept in mixed groups.
Tadpoles have been shown to be able to recognize kin.
The 96h LC50 of commercial grade malathion for the tadpoles is 7.5 mg/L and sublethal levels of exposure can impair swimming.
Distribution and habitat:
Asian common toads occur widely from northern Pakistan through Nepal, Bangladesh, India including the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam,
Cambodia, southern China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau to Malaysia, Singapore, and the Indonesian islands of Sumatra, Java, Borneo, Anambas and Natuna Islands.
They have been recorded from sea level up to 1,800 m (5,900 ft) altitude, and live mostly in disturbed lowland habitats, from upper beaches and riverbanks to human-dominated agricultural and urban areas.
They are uncommon in closed forests.
