Indosylvirana temporalis — Günther’s Golden-backed Frog
Also known as:
Kerala Golden-backed Frog
This is a common and widespread medium-sized frog, endemic to Sri Lanka.
We usually saw them on the ground, near streams. Although capable of powerful leaps, they would generally allow a pretty close approach.
The previous frogs were from the highlands; these are from a lowland rainforest area.
