Habitat and Ecology
It is a species of open savannah woodland. The males call from the edge of water, often camouflaged among pebbles. It breeds in shallow pools and pits. Its adaptability to altered habitats is not clear.
There is little information, although it is believed to be common in suitable situations.
It is widely distributed in a region of low human impact, and so it is unlikely to be significantly threatened, except in local situations.
It occurs in many protected areas.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, its tolerance of a broad range of habitats and its presumed large population.
