Ambohitantely at the waterfall.
This large frog (5-6cm) was seen half submerged on rocks in the stream leading from the waterfall. Said to grow larger and to be edible, so perhaps M. grandidieri?
Under current (2011) taxonomy, this is closest to Mantidactylus grandidieri. But it is thought to belong to an as yet undescribed species referred to by Glaw & Vences (2007) as M. sp. aff. grandidieri 'North'.
