Life before birth

Encased in their glass-eggs, under heavy rains, dozens of Amboli Bush froglet was curling up for one final night before taking birth into this world. Eggs are maximum 4mm in size no bigger than a grain and generally lay in a cluster. It was remarkable seeing the incredibly small almost full grown frogs move inside the eggs every now and then. The Amboli bush frog (Pseudophilautu amboli), is a rare shrub frog species endemic to the Western Ghats who does not metamorphose through the tadpole phase
