Great photos everyone!

Took me a long time to find one of my most favourite frogs. Finally got one at the Shimuwini lapa area in February.

Found it in a bridge rail close to croc bridge. What is the correct name? I call it the pipe frog.

Yes, it's a southern foam nest frog (Chiromantis xerampelina). They turn white to reflect heat in the sunlight.

Gilbertr14... well done on the subspecies identification :)
