Caution: Bullfrog crossing! – 11 March 2014
GLEN Austin Conservancy warned motorists and residents to keep their eyes peeled for the African Giant Bullfrogs
GLEN Austin Conservancy warned motorists and residents to keep their eyes peeled for the Giant Bullfrogs who are lapping up the wet weather and gravitating to the road for food and warmth.
Chairperson for the Glen Austin Conservancy Rob Fowler said, “It would appear as if our Giant Bullfrog may be making a reappearance after the recent good rains we have had. They are soon going to be moving around their natural habitat which means crossing roads and private properties. So many are needlessly killed each year and it is such a pity.”
The conservancy issued posters around the Glen Austin area warning community members to tread carefully and help protect the bullfrogs by giving them space.
Tyrone Mckendry heads up the biodiversity project for the Greater Kyalami Conservancy and also cautioned motorists to drive slowly.
