TGIFF! Thank Goodness it’s FROG FRIDAY!! The East African Puddle Frog (Phrynobatrachus acridoides) ranges from southern Somalia and Kenya, south to eastern Zimbabwe, Mozambique and northern KwaZulu-Natal Province in South Africa.

The East African Puddle Frog is a species of dry and humid savannahs, shrubland, grassland and coastal habitats, and it is adaptable to alteration of its habitats. It breeds in temporary, and sometimes permanent, waterbodies, including puddles, pools, swamps, vleis, roadside ditches, and flooded grassy depressions.
