Croaking Around – Jayaram’s Bush Frog
This is Raorchestes jayarami or Jayaram’s Bush Frog, one of the many species of amphibians found in rainforests of Western Ghats. The vocal sac is used by the males to amplify their mating call. Many of these Raorchestes species are critically endangered and were considered lost to science, some have been recently rediscovered.
I took this image in Valparai in Anaimalai Tiger Reserve while on a herping and macro photography expedition in the rainforests of Western Ghats.
