You’re looking at the only photograph ever of the newly rediscovered Sambas stream toad or Bornean rainbow toad. This is the first time the toad has been seen in 87 years and it is the FIRST time it being caught on film.

P.s. Thank you Chris Garrison for telling me about this!

Edit: Added a few more great pictures thanks to Jon Leibowitz showing me another article from Monga Bay!
