These black rain frogs, which can be seen with an angry or sad look, are native to the southern coast of Africa. These frogs are found at elevations of more than 3,300 ft, often burrowing to create tunnels up to 6 inches deep.
Being a species that inhabits forest edges and hollow areas, these frogs never need to be in open water to survive.
These frogs are quite small in size with a maximum body size of about 2 inches. But they are especially fascinating.
Their specialty is expanding their bodies to adopt a more aggressive posture when threatened. Often this is done during piercing.
During mating season, the female will release a sticky substance to prevent her from falling off the male’s back. It is called adhesive amplexus.
Also, after the female of this species lays the eggs, the male stays inside the burrow to protect the eggs and emit small sneezes.
