Pictured here is the male frog checking out his eggs, and calling so that other females would come and lay their eggs.
There is lot more mystery involved in the breeding behavior of these night frogs.
I'm curious to know the below-
Is the male calling the same female that laid her eggs earlier? Is he calling other females to come and lay their eggs or is his calling near the eggs so that is stimulates the embryo to develop faster? who knows. Only observing these frogs will reveal the truth about their beautiful life!
The Bombay night frog is a species of frog in the family Nyctibatrachidae. It is endemic to the Western Ghats of Maharashtra state, India. The species is found near torrential hill streams in tropical moist evergreen and semi-evergreen forests, a habitat that is threatened by habitat loss and pollution. Its name honours Humayun Abdulali, an Indian biologist.
