Brachytarsophrys feae (common names: Fea's horned frog, Fea's short-legged toad, Kakhien Hills spadefoot toad, and others) is a species of amphibian in the Megophryidae family.
It is found in southern China and northern Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam; it is likely to occur in Laos. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, and rivers. It is threatened by habitat loss.
Brachytarsophrys feae are large frogs: males grow to about 96 mm and females to about 101 mm in snout-vent length. Tadpoles are small in comparison, about 39 mm in length.
Male Brachytarsophrys feae appear to be territorial. Their advertisement call is loud and can be likened to barking. Limited data suggest that chorusing occurs only in rainy nights; otherwise males remain hidden in their stream-side burrows.
