South African wildlife – Foamy nest frog

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?
