South African wildlife – Foamy nest frog

View Images

This is the last animal we saw on our South African safari, and we found it sitting on top of our conditioner. Thank goodness it wasn’t a leopard.

I reckon it’s a foamy nest frog, so named for its tendency to lay its eggs into a nest of foamy bubbles overhanging a body of water. I always thought this species had a darker colour but apparently, they become almost white in bright sunlight. Charming little tyke, isn’t it?
