AMPHIBIAN TUESDAY # 81
We’re off to Southeast Africa to meet today’s amphibian. These cool little frogs live underground, so we’ll have to be extra observant to find them! Put your best safari outfit on and let’s go!
MEET THE BUSHVELD RAIN FROG!

- Bushveld rain frogs live underground.
- Bushveld rain frogs have short legs.

Bushveld rain frogs are super cute. It is cool that they can inflate themselves. Can you imagine if Ellie could blow herself up? HAHAHAHAHA!
