Humayun Calling! One of the 27 endemic species of night frogs found in Western Ghats India. This species of frogs are the only frogs in the world that are known not to exhibit true amplexus. The females lays their eggs a few feet above the calling males on rocks, leaves, twigs and jump off. The males then visit the clutch and fertilize them. Another behavior which we observed is the male would touch the eggs as if checking if the eggs are moist enough. It was a treat observing a part of the life of these jewels of Western Ghats. Stay tuned for the next image of this frog. Its quite interesting!
