With only a handful of sightings, the aptly named Beautiful Forest Toad is as elusive as it is stunning. It's known range is restricted to a very small patch of forest, which has not been properly surveyed by herpetologists in the last decade. To assess its conservation status, we aim to seek it out, on the top of one of Tanzania's Eastern Arc Mountains.
