Description

Last monsoon me and Anoop stumbled upon a little patch of froggy heaven in Coorg. It was a nesting site for Rhacophorus lateralis!!!

The male seen here just 1 among the many who were in the process of finding a mate and building nests last year.

There were many adults perched on leaves. But no nest building activity took place. Few males were calling and few were just contemplating.

All the females were just staring into the dark.

We knew our torch lights would be a disturbance to them if we hang around. So we quickly took a few photographs and waited for a couple of hours in the dark away from the nest site, listening to all sorts of frog calls. We had found tranquility then.

It was past mid night now, we had a quick check then we went back leaving the frogs in peace.

Very heavy rain and wind made the trip highly enjoyable.

Description

After the National Seminar on Climate Change and Biodiversity at CBCNR, CUO in Koraput, Odisha from 23.11.2013 to 24.11.2013 my research group visited the famous Gupteswar temple on 25.11.2013. We took a trail to the Sitakund (a wetland) from 1.00 pm to 2.30 pm. We observed a Common Skittering frog (Euphlyctis cyanophlyctis) in the surface of that Wetland. Initially it was unidentified. Later on it was identified by Sarmistha Dey (https://www.researchgate.net/post/Please_help_me_to_identify_this_species2).
