Young Mossy frog, Theloderma corticale sitting on the edge of a small pool

As witnessed by Val Saxby on the photography day two days ago, these are the strangest of frogs. I keep finding them lying in human like positions on their sides, backs or even sitting. I have never encountered this before with any other frog. At first I was alarmed, thinking one was ill, but no, this is just a peculiar trait of this species Smile
This one was just sitting there on a leaf, I found another sitting in a similar position amongst the moss an hour ago, he just stayed there whilst I replicated rain with my spray bottle and didnt bother moving for about 30 minutes..

They are so characterful, must admit he did scare me when he was laying on his back but was up and about again pretty quickly as you say seems to be a trait of these frogs. - great shot Angi

Really comical. Looks like a little old man.
They must take up loads of time in observing their traits.
