This frog is a real terror of smaller creatures! I knew of the behaviour of the father, it is known as one of the best animals that provide parental care. Impressive!

Kyle, I remember seeing my first bullfrogs after hearing them, in SabiSand. A few were in a small pan and as I was watching, one jumped out and I just froze. It must have been a female as she was big and fat! Last year I was surprised on my walk back to my room by a snake on the path. Luckily Kirst saw it and moved me out of its way. I don’t remember if it was a python or something else, but I can live without encountering another one close up. I think I’ll take my chances with the frogs or a caterpillar.

Kyle, thanks for the interesting facts about the African Bullfrogs. I enjoyed your pictures as well.

It’s always wonderful to read/see stories about smaller critters. While I love the action of the big guys, and the to and fro of the birdies, I’m more and more attracted to the others. Good job.

Lovely! The little things are just as nice! I was amazed seeing a baby kameleon once during an eveningdrive. It had turned white already……….

Wow Kyle, what a fantastic sight! I have seen a bullfrog but I haven’t known much about them. So this was very interesting to read. And the photos are also great. Thanks!

I love this blog about a small critter. I could feel the excitement in Kyle’s words as he described his new-found knowledge of African Bullfrogs. As a wildlife photographer, it’s a great reminder to always look down and up as well as straight ahead so as not to miss anything.

Now I want to see one in real life. Surely a frog that size must have inspired a vintage sci-fi horror film once or twice.

Good pictures Kyle and fascinating story on the bull frogs. They are huge and I’m sure they not so friendly. The Father eating the off spring is cannibalism and maybe that is also to make sure there are not to many bull frogs.

Thanks for the bullfrog information Kyle. Really very interesting creatures. I actually love frogs. Unfortunately you do not get to see them often. A really nice find on your part.

Well done Kyle! Your insights are amazing…from the largest to the smallest of creatures! Great photos too!

What a great education on the Bullfrog — fascinating. Thank you the great photos and write up. I look forward to seeing one next time we come.

I’ll never forget my first dung beetle rolling dung! But I love the little critters as much as the big ones, which I am sure will irritate my vehicle mates this next trip, as usual:-)

Thanks for then fascinating account and accompanying photos Kyle. Really cool learning about this rare and perhaps under appreciated member of the Londolozi animal family!!

I loved your humorous account of the Giant African Bull from Kyle! They certainly sound pretty mean for their size as didn’t realize they can take on snakes etc. 😳 What a great find for your guests and another blog filled with interesting facts. Thanks 🙏🏻
