Tinker Reed Frog (Hyperolius tuberilinguis)

A cute, small frog of about 4cm in length.

They are found in the northern part of the east coast and distinguishes by the plain green and orange/yellow limbs.

Males have a yellow throat.

The ones we found on the road in Kruger I have still not been able to identify although just last night I saw something similar and want to check out more pictures of it.

That is not a reed frog.

It's a tree frog.
