I wonder why some countries have so many beautifully decorated "creatures", while others have fairly plain ones. Maybe climate, as I am recalling the birds I saw in places like Alaska and Norway.

Borneo has some really wild-looking critters. Yet I find that most of the frogs there are pretty bland compared to other places. In general, I would expect to find more ornate critters in areas of high biodiversity, where standing out could be important... or where bland colors blending in would be more important to avoid the abundant predators.
