Amietophrynus gutturalis

The Guttural Toad is a well known frog that can grow to a length of 10 cm.

This toad is common to gardens and fish ponds across much of South Africa. Its loud and continual croaking has kept many people awake at night!

Apart from gardens it may also be found is savanna and grasslands.
