Arthroleptis wahlbergi

The Bush Squeaker is a tiny little frog that reaches a maximum size of 3 cm.

This frog is well-known for its high-pitched call during rainy weather (even my garden sprinkler sets them off...)

The upper parts of the Bush Squeaker are brown with reddish-brown blotches. Underneath it is white with speckles.

The Bush Squeaker is only found in the coastal areas of eastern South Africa. It may occur in Mozambique as well.
