Check out the new Stardust Purple Frog sticker! The white area remains when peeled.

 

The Purple Frog (Nasikabatrachus sahyadrensis) is endemic to the Western Ghats region of Southern India. They are also only one of two species to belong to the family Nasikabatrachus. These round frogs spend most of their time underground and only submerging for a few days in order to breed. They are recognizable by their flat plump bodies and pig nose. Thw tadpole as well as the adult are often consumed by people and also used within medications. 

 

The purple frog is listed as Endangered by the IUCN Red List and is threatened by deforestation from expanding cultivation, in addition to consumption and harvesting by local communities. Not much is known about these frogs, except that it has very specific breeding sites. Its specialized breeding biology makes it vulnerable to habitat loss and change. Most of their locations are found to occur outside the protected area network and some breeding sites have been damaged by the construction of check dams that aim to control water flow during heavy monsoons.
