Uperodon globulosus (Indian balloon frog)
Uperodon globulosus is a type of narrow-mouthed frog which has a rounded snout. This frogs comes under Genus Uperodon which has a distinctive character and ability to puff up like a balloon by expanding its lungs. It is a burrowing frog species which means they can remain in the soil burrowing themselves for the entire year and comes out for courtship and returns to the soil. During the courtship season, they can be found in shallow water in fields. We found it ever in Vasai for the first time.
