The Kloof Frog, Natalobatrachus bonebergi, is a dainty and rare frog from moist, misty ravine forests in South Africa. These frogs have expanded tips to their fingers and toes, like the capital letter T, to help them clamber into trees and bushes and cling to smooth rock surfaces. Their reproduction is peculiar: the female lays a clump of eggs onto a branch or rock overhang over a flowing stream; the male fertilizes them right there and the tadpoles develop inside them for six days. Then the jelly 'melts' and the tadpoles drop into the water, where they complete their metamorphosis in about another two months. This species is rare as a result of pollution and habitat destruction - many of the forests where they occur have been turned into sugar cane plantations or residential areas. Acrylic.
Looks really nice, you are so talented!
That's interesting species. T- fingered one, never heard about them but Red eyed tree frog Litoria chloris lays its eggs in similar fashion on leaves.
Hey, I'll look that one up! Thanks for commenting!
Very interesting and cute!
