Description

Found this Bush frog hopping among the thick grass almost at the peak.
It was very easy for us to lose it among the grass.. So we decide to place it on a boulder for a record shot.

We were perplexed what these bush frogs were doing here, a grassland.
There was no Shola forest for quiet some distance and reaching such a forest would be an impossible feat given all the obstructions it had to negotiate.

After a few shots we released it back in the same place.

We thought it might be Raorchestes kani.. Thanks to Gururaja Sir and Sandeep Das for the ID :-)

Description

True to its name,this froggy proved tricky to ID..The female is a brilliant green with little resemblance to the male.. Listed as Vulnerable because its extent of occurrence is estimated to be 7,204 km2, it is known from three threat-defined locations and its population is considered to be severely fragmented, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of its habitat in the Western Ghats of India Thanks Vipin Baliga for the ID :-)
