Fight for food! Froglets of Matheran Leaping frog are so hungry that all the forest floor was filled with these hungry amphibians catching and fighting for the earthworms and other insects.<br />
So the name Matheran is actually the type location of the species meaning from where the species was described. It is a beautifull hill at an elevation of 800m and hosts variety of herpetofaunal elements along with lovely insect diversity. During monsoon, the forest floor of Matheran is full of these frogs.
