An Unusual Feeding Habitat of the Savannah Frog Scinax rubra (Laurenti)

Graham L. White


At the Caroni Rice Project at 7:00 o'clock one morning, I noticed strange movements of panicles of guinea grass (Panicum maximum) along the border of a rice field. My attention thus attracted, I saw that several panicles hosted one or more frogs Scinax rubra (Laurenti) (=Ololygon rubra), engaged in a gymnastic routine.
