The Java bubble-nest frog or gold-striped tree frog (Philautus aurifasciatus) is a frog. It lives in Indonesia.[2][3] People have only seen this frog higher than 900 meters above sea level.[1]

Scientists say this frog is not in danger of dying out because it lives in such a big place. It lives in forests high up in the hills. Some of the places it lives are in protected parks.[1]

This frog lays eggs in holes in trees. It hatches out of its egg as a small frog and never swims as a tadpole.[1]
