Description: Hyperactive little (15mm) fella found on dewy front lawn at dawn. Would not settle - and hated being under glass - so released him into pond where he swam rapidly to the side. First assumed was juvenile Snoring Puddle, but on editing the pictures, noted the corresponding bands on upper and lower jaw, the faintly banded thighs and the notably absent webbing from the toe.

Description: I love the Afrikaans name for this frog! About 40mm long, on a mud-patch in a small roadside stream. I was attracted by their unmistakable calling on a drizzly day. The rest of the group of males plopped into the stream at my approach, but this lone fella stood his mud.
