Frog ID

Postby ehlersd » Tue Oct 01, 2013 1:15 pm

I photographed this yellow-belllied sand snake catching this frog, but I don't know what kind of frog it is. It was near the border close to Botswana. It's a dry area but the other frogs leaped into the water nearby to escape the snake.
Your help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Looks like some species of Ptychadena

I agree with Warren, it looks like one of the Ptychadena but without clear head and dorsum shots it would be difficult to determine the species.
