Angry Desert Rain Frog Squeaks With Displeasure

Man, it must really suck to be the little Desert rain frog in this video by Dean Boshoff, because the ornery little critter is so cute even his scream of displeasure sounds like a squeaky toy!

Dean was clearly in awe of the squeaky little guy when he wrote this about the encounter:

I recorded a short clip of the defensive cry of the Desert rain frog – Breviceps macrops while walking along the sand dunes in Port Nolloth, a coastal town in the Northern Cape province, it alerted me to its presence with its fearsome war cry. I knelt down and proceeded to photograph and film this unusual creature’s behaviour.

The Desert rain frog clearly doesn't have a clue about active defenses, because if it did it would realize its ridiculously cute squeak just makes people like Dean Boshoff want to pester it more!
