Had to turn over a lot of rocks before I found this little guy in the Garden Route Botanical Gardens in George last week.

Hi Bennie,

yeah, only a wee little fella. Here he is on my spectacle frame, smudging the lenses, as I tried to get a photo of his underbelly.

Strange enough, not the smallest froggie I have come across to date. That belongs to a minute little Clicking Stream Frog I found in my dad's garden. Here it is on the side of my finger. I will post a better scaled photo later to illustrate how small it really was.

Very noisy indeed. :D The males have huge vocal sacks and are well cut out to do the job. But to me it is a beautiful call. :thumbs_up:
