Bronzed frog

Hylarana temporalis

Description:

The bronzed frog (Hylarana temporalis) is a species of true frog found in the riparian evergreen forests of the Western Ghats, India, and the highlands of southwestern Sri Lanka. They are found abundantly on or close to the ground near water. Individuals are not shy and react by jumping only when provoked. They are important prey of many species of snakes, including the Malabar pit viper and the vine snake.The frogs' common name is derived from the small bronze-coloured strips that appear on either side of the lower jaw, between the snout and the posterior point of the forelimbs, within a week after metamorphosis.
