Wikipedia Abstract

The Das' dwarf toad or torrent toad (Adenomus dasi) is a species of toad endemic to Sri Lanka. Its only known habitat is in Peak Wilderness Sanctuary, at an altitude of 1,370 m, where it is a rare species. In the 1890s it was also recorded near Nuwara Eliya, but this population is assumed to be extinct. It is listed as a critically endangered species due to a restricted range and habitat loss caused by water pollution.A.
