I was this little fellow in Port Shepstone the other weekend.
It was during the day, and looked almost totally white.

That is a Hyperolius marmoratus marmoratus, the day time colour. Not sure of the common name :)

If so then that's pretty cool, and weird how the colours can vary.
I've seen darked coloured ones with stripes durning the day in Umhlanga.

Yup painted reed :). They change colour in the day to almost snow white, and at night go the darker brown with the patterns.
