Bubbling Kassina

Frogs | Namibia

Introduction: Bubbling Kassinas (Kassina senegalensis) are usually found in grassland surrounding pans and vleis. Their body can be described as 'bullet-shaped'. Other features include large and protruding eyes.

Distribution: Mainly north-eastern Namibia, but found around Windhoek, in Etosha National Park, the Kavango region and the Zambezi Region (formerly the Caprivi Strip).

Diet: Aquatic insects.

Colouration: The upperparts are adorned with a solid, bold black vertebral band with broken paravertebral bands on a yellow, silver-beige or olive background. The underside is off-white.

Breeding: Eggs are attached to submerged vegetation individually. Narrow-bodied tadpoles are produced, up to 80mm. Their thick fins allow them to swim between dense aquatic vegetation. Their bright red tail fins in clear water scare off predators.

Maximum size: 50mm.
