Please can someone identify this frog?

Postby DeliaJ » Sun Jan 26, 2014 12:55 pm

Dear Everyone,
Please can you assist me in identifying this frog.

I found 2 of them on my window, located on the Natal North Coast, near a forest and the beach.

I have googled but so far think he is some species of reed frog.

Please advise? He/She was only about 3 cms long and the smallest frog I have spotted.
Please excuse quality of photo, taken on my cell phone.

Thank you.
Kind regards
Delia

I would agree with you - we get a lot in Cape Town and their markings can vary dramatically, though the shape looks the same.
