Bufo claviger
Bengkulu Toad

Based on IUCN (2006), this species is only known with certainty from nothern Bengkulu Province, Sumatra; it lives in lowland forest. However, during the survey in Sulap Hills site, a juvenile of B. claviger was found inside rubber plantation at elevation about 200 meters asl. At the site, the frog inhabited very slow -moving stream. Based on this record, B. claviger can adapt to man mad habitat or probably in the other types of degraded forest. It was a rare species, because only one individual was found in Sulap Hills survey site.
