Description:

20mm long, hopping "manfully" through the grass between river and dam on a cool, damp afternoon. Amazing athleticism for such a chubby little bod!

"Immaculate" throat shows she's female. Corresponding jaw-bands, upper & lower, and elongated shoulder warts, plus size show she's an adult mbab.

Description:

The bird-bath waterfall pump burned out and I was replacing it when this warty 30-odd mm frog shot out from under it. Rotten place for frogs to breed - their eggs would get sucked through the strainer and graunched by the impellor blades. Not easy catching the surprisingly agile little man to release him in the wildlife pond in the back jungle - from whence, I suspect, he had come.
