PNHS survey Teraja area 2010-2011. As part of their Master project, Sandra Goutte from France and Hanyrol from UBD, Brunei conducted 48 frog surveys at six selected streams within Bukit Teraja Protection Forest and its vicinity. The project started from the 1st of April 2010 to the 2nd of January 2011. Also joining the research team were supervisor, Dr Ulmar Grafe, UBD students, PHNS enthusiasts, and others.
They found 36 species of frogs during the survey belonging to 7 families (Table 1). Excitingly, 5 frog species (Brown Bullfrog, Least Narrow-mouthed Frog, Peat Swamp Frog, Cricket Frog and Rough Guardian Frog) that have never been recorded in Brunei were spotted during the survey. Two of these species were found just behind the Teraja Longhouse! This brings the total number of frog species in Brunei to 81.
