Silence is Golden


On a moonless night, tracing the source of a noisy croak, my light beam landed on a Copper Cheeked frog Rana chalconota sitting motionless in Nee Soon Swamp. Probably the strong beam had blinded him momentarily. This frog is confined to forest areas. It can be green or yellowish, as in this case.

If it eats Spiders I want one. I had a Toad (like a frog) in a greenhouse once.
