The Baram whipping frog, forest bush frog, brown-striped tree frog, big-eared whipping frog, dark-eared tree frog, or Bongao bubble-nest frog (Polypedates macrotis) is a frog. It lives in Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, and some islands in the South China Sea.[2][3] People have seen them as high as 1300 meters above sea level.[1]

This frog lives in forests. It can lay eggs in ditches and other bodies of water.[1]

Scientists believe this frog is not in danger of dying out because it lives in such a large place and because it can live in places that humans have changed.[1]
