For Sure Elsa ? :thumbs_up:

Doesn't normally look like that in my experience, but it's amazing what a difference a good rain can do. We also went there the day after the long awaited rains in 2010 and there were so many bullfrogs all over, including the "car park" that we couldn't even drive in for fear of squishing them ! So lurking below the soil of the pan are many organisms just waiting for water !

I have a pic of it covered in water lillies as well and its really pretty like that and so different to how it is in the dry season!
I recall also seeing those big African bullfrogs there one year as well but not in such quantities as you describe.
