The desert rain frog (Breviceps macrops) is a endangered species of frog which resides in desert and sandy areas. It is mainly known for its unusual squeaking, behaviour and sound compared to its appearance. It gained notability thanks to Dean Boshoff.
On February the 13th, 2013, Dean Boshoff uploaded a video to YouTube titled ‘Worlds Cutest Frog – Desert Rain Frog’, which shows the frog mainly showing its unusual squeaky noise. As of now, it’s hit nearly 6 million views. The video can be seen here:
He said about this: ‘I recorded a short clip of the defensive cry of the Desert rain frog – Breviceps macrops while walking along the sand dunes in Port Nolloth, a coastal town in the Northern Cape province, it alerted me to its presence with its fearsome war cry. I knelt down and proceeded to photograph and film this unusual creature’s behaviour’
12 days later (or February the 25th), Dean Boshoff uploaded a new video of the desert rain frog, titled ‘Worlds cutest frog – all new footage!’ Shown here:
