Is a great place to ask this sort of question, it also helps map where species occur

If i look at the rear legs, it must be a jump-frog with a coustom paint job, maybe it's used for drag racing.

Jip, die streep is altyd daar.

Die kleur verskil wel van streek tot streek, waar die padda meer groen of bruin kan wees. Dit veroorsaak dat die streep meer of minder duidelik is.
