The Cape Sand frog
The Arum lily frog Hyperolius horstockii. This attractive frog inhabits wetlands in the southern coastal lowlands extending from Cape Town to the Tsitsikamma region. These frogs are sometimes found in arum lily flowers where they can change colour to perfectly match the surroundings. This makes them virtually invisible to predators as well as to their insect prey. Adult length: 40 mm
The Cape river frog, Rana fuscigula. This large frog occurs virtually throughout the Cape provinces especially near to permanent water. It has a varied diet which includes insects, snails, small rodents, lizards, snakes and frogs (even their own kind). This species adapts well to man-made habitats and can often be found in garden fishponds. Adult length: 120 mm.
