Meet The African Rain Frogs – The World’s Grumpiest Frog

These frogs aren’t in fact mad or sad, it’s just what these black rainfall frogs look like.

Native to the Southern coast of Africa, located at elevations of over 3,300 ft, usually found burrowing to create tunnels up to 6 inches deep.

This is specifically impressive thinking about these frogs are tiny, stretching up to a max of 2 inches long.

Since they are a burrowing species who populate woodland fringes, this frog never ever actually needs to be in the presence of open water to survive.

When threatened, the black rainfall frog will expand, increasing its body to adopt a more aggressive stance.

It will often do this while burrowing as the increased size will certainly mean whatever is grabbing it will certainly have a hard time to draw it out of its hole.

Throughout mating season, the female of the types will release a sticky substance to keep the male from falling off its back.

This is called sticky amplexus, it literally refuses to allow go of its friend, now this is what you call faithful.

When the female has laid its eggs, the male will remain within the burrow to guard the eggs and let out little chirps.
