Black Rain Frogs aka the Grumpiest Frog Makes the Cutest Sounds You’ll Ever Hear!

This bloated jumping avocado with the most adorable squeaks you’ll ever hear is actually a black rain frog, also known as plain rain frog, brown short-headed frog, and Tsitsikama rain frog. Its mouth always seems to be making an incredibly grouchy expression which made black rain frog famous for being the most grumpy frog in the world. That’s exactly why it’s so funny when you hear the sweet little noise they produce. When in danger they bloat up a size, making themselves even angrier. The species can be found on the southern slopes of the Cape Fold Belt in South Africa. They live at the elevations of around 3,300 ft (1,000 m) inhabiting fynbos and forest fringes. As burrowing amphibians, these frogs dig tunnels up to 150 mm deep. After mating male frogs guard the eggs in the hole and communicate with females with their recognizable high pitched “screams”.
