The Gunung Gading tree frog or Gading tree frog (Leptomantis gadingensis) is a frog. It lives in Malaysia.[1][2] People have seen it between 0 and 150 meters above sea level.[3]

The adult frog is 29.5 mm long from nose to rear end. The skin of the frog's back is brown. There is a dark line between the eyes and some darker brown marks on the back. There is some blue color on the sides of the body.[4]

People have seen this frog near streams where the water moves quickly. It cannot live in streams that human beings have changed. The male frog its 3 m above the ground and calls to the female frogs.[3]

Scientists believe this frog is not in danger of dying out because even though it lives in two small places, both those places are protected parks.[3]
