We set up another pitfall trap today in a forested part of the savanna which has water in the rainy season, but when we were there, most of it had dried up. There were lots of signs of hippos, which has become pretty common, and tons of little frogs. I can see one problem they will have with the road they want to put in, and that is hippos crossing at night.

The young frogs are interesting, they all have different patterns in their attempts to mimic the leaves so they do not get gobbled up.  Oh and the first spot we checked for the traps had a huge black snake that zipped up a tree with no problem, so we moved on!
