Eggs of Theloderma kwangsiensis were obtained through the survey of amphibian in Hainan Yinggeling Provincial Nature Reserve from 2010 to 2012. The eggs were hatched and then the tadpole and froglet were fed artificially. The result showed that the breeding season of T. kwangsiensis is in the middle of March and the incubation will last for 14 days; the transformation will be finished in about six months. The labial tooth row formula of tadpole is I:2+2/1+1:II. The population size of T. kwangsiensis is extremely small, thus enhanced protective methods should be taken to prevent this species from extinction.
