This Frog Screams When It Gets Scared

August 12, 2016 - In a wooded area of Cape Town, South Africa, a man out for a family walk with his dogs came upon this surprisingly vocal frog. This animal, a Cape rain frog, belongs to a small group of related species that puff up into a ball and scream when threatened, in this case by the two dogs and a person off-screen poking at it with an umbrella. The frog’s defensive behavior is interesting to note, but viewers are strongly advised against actively confronting any wild animal.
