River Frog: Van Dijk's

Unread post by wildtuinman » Fri Jan 04, 2013 7:32 am

The large pale patch on the centre of the back and the skin ridge running from the back base of the eye towards the arm are the tell tale signs to look out for on this species. It occurs high up along the Swartberg mountains in the southern parts of the western Cape along rocky streams.
