Chinting Alpine Toad
Males have small and dense nuptial spines on the inner three fingers as well as the inner side of the forelegs. There are also two pairs of nuptial pads proximal to the chest, in which the inner pair is larger than the outer pair. Eggs are about 3.5 mm in diameter. When tadpoles are about 33 mm long, the head-body length is about 12 mm. When the tadpoles are about 51 mm, the head-body length is about 20 mm. The labial tooth row is I : 3 - 3 / I : 2 - 2. The labial edge is wide, and the teeth are short and weak.
