Single individual observed beneath large piece of plastic within woodland area that adjoins mineral line. Note warty skin and when disturbed tended to walk rather than hop. Difficult to take photos given low light conditions in-situ but decided against using Flash – seems likely that a species that is used to low light conditions may be affected by Flash photography.
