The nights at SouthWild Pantanal were filled with the sounds of frogs of many sizes and colors, and I was lucky to be able to reach this species without going deep into the water where apparently most of them were located.

This pond was not far from the water tower of the lodge and I heard frogs everywhere. But finding them was a matter of patience. Both because they are not easy to see and that they would disappear if I moved too fast.

In a few weeks most of the dry land of today will be under water, and the frogs will no longer be gathering in dense groups in ponds as is the case here. I definitely visited during what I consider the best time – the transition from dry to wet season.
