The International Union for the conservation of Nature has released a list naming the 100 most endangered species on the planet. On this list is the “Table Mountain Ghost Frog” An amphibian that is found ONLY on Table Mountain.
This tiny, squat creature lives in the fast flowing streams found on top of the mountain that are home to many other amphibians. The presence of these creatures indicate the health of the air and the water found on top of the mountain.
Many hikers on Table Mountain are amazed by the constant chirping of frogs especially following rain.
Even in the summer months we often see a variety of amphibians relaxing in the pools on top.
The best trail to hear and possibly see a frog or 2 is Skeleton Gorge.
