The answer to this week’s frog or toad is….. FROG. It is a Beddome’s Night Frog (Nyctibatrachus beddomii) from the True Frog family – Ranidae. It is found in the Western Ghats of India.
The Beddome’s Night Frog lacks any warts on its back. It also lacks a parotoid gland behind its eyes. The skin is rather smooth too. That’s how you can tell its a frog.
