Mark's bush frog (Raorchestes marki) is a frog. It lives in India, in the Western Ghat Mountains in the Nelliyampathi Hills.[2][3][1]

Like other frogs in Raorchestes, this frog hatches out of its egg as a small frog and never swims as a tadpole.[1]

Scientists say this frog is in big danger of dying out because it lives in such a small place and people are still cutting down the forests where it lives to build farms, things for visitors, and other things for a complicated society.[1]
