Sri Lankan frogs …

Inevitable, but a long time coming … a post on Sri Lankan frogs!

Six Toed Frog?
Six Toed Frog?

Many times during our holiday I heard frog calls, but without suitable clothing and equipment a frog expedition was not really practical, so I had to wait patiently until either the frogs came to me or until I stumbled upon one.  Considering that there are 118 frogs recorded as existing in Sri Lanka my chances were pretty good.

High up the mountain in a lily pond at Dambulla Caves there were several very plain, not particularly photogenic and as yet un-identified frogs. But at Lunuganga, with the assistance of Damien the in-house wildlife expert, we spotted multiple frogs, two of whom I managed to photograph.
