Meet Ghana’s Beloved “Lady”: The Night Spirit Frog

The Night Spirit Frog (Leptopelis spiritusnoctis) is considered Ghana’s most beloved frog.

Why The Giant Squeaker Frog Is "Giant"

Frogs in the genus Arthroleptis are often referred to as "squeakers." This is because of the distinctive insect-like call they make and are also called cricket or screeching frogs. They are usually small, most about the size of a baby’s thumb, with the smallest squeaker measuring merely 15mm in length. The Giant Squeaker Frog (Arthroleptis krokosua) measures up to 50mm, making it the largest squeaker in the whole of West Africa. As it is about three times the size of the smallest squeaker it must be nothing less than a “GIANT.”

Testimonials

"Hello, I have been interested in frogs for the last 20 years. They are (a) wonderful animals on their own right, with wonderful behaviors and anatomical specifications; (b) a wonderful tool for education about the importance of ecosystem health to species health and (c) just beautiful. They get kids excited about animals, nature, and science."
