Variable bush frog Met this beautiful male variable bush frog during recent visit to the western ghats while looking for the croaking friends.<br />
There were many in number all calling out loud to attract mate. Slight drizzle would amplify the calls.<br />
It was an orchestra where variable bush frogs were the main, with sudden chorus of Malabar tree toads(Pedostibes tuberculosus) and with the water droplet frog(Raorchestes nerostagona) droplet-beat all the while.

    1. Could be. I have seen the coloration is very different between male and female of this species.
      Could you share the images?

''Raorchestes akroparallagi'' is a species of frog in the Rhacophoridae family.
It is endemic to the Western Ghats, India, where it is known from the states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Before its description in 2009, it was confused with ''Raorchestes femoralis'' and ''Raorchestes glandulosus''.
