Frog, Mottled Shovel-nosed

Unread post by wildtuinman » Tue Jan 29, 2013 9:18 am

Satara's pond is attracting quite a few frogs after all the rain in the area.

Found this tiny little Mottled Shovel-nosed Frog in the road just in time to save it from becoming a snack to another frog.

It is unbelievably strong for a tiny frog. I tried to catch it, but with its shovel nosed it had no problems digging through between my fingers.
