The Malabar Flying Frog (Rhacophorus malabaricus) is a moss frog species found in the Western Ghats of India. The term "flying frog" refers to its ability to break their fall by stretching the webbing between their toes when making leaps down from the treetops. It can make gliding jumps of 9-12 meters, a maximum of about 115 times its length
