Hullo, I guess this is probably the right place to post this? I've been working all afternoon trying to figure out who this froggy I saw last December is. Spotted in the semi-arid Singida region of Tanzania, just north of Singida town, during the second month of rains up on a fence post a few meters off the ground
Can I just link to my iNaturalist observation? http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/2786092 I guess I can direct link to the images there so people don't have to click over

And if time passes and links break or you're on an internet connection that takes forever to load, it's a brown frog(/toad?) with a white belly and irregular black splotches/spots around the border between that brown and white and extending up onto the sides of the face (below the eyes) and on the legs/arms.
It has horizontal pupils.
Its palms and the insides of its legs are red/orange, it has toe discs, and its feet don't seem very webbed. Oh and its hind legs are pretty short, I'd say it definitely has a tibia that's less than half its body length (which was a thing in a key that I read).
It's body is pretty round, but not spherical, it's probably close to 30mm long
Gosh, reading my iNaturalist observation, I used plural, so maybe this was 2-3 frogs. I thought I just bothered it enough that it climbed up higher, but maybe not :P

I think it's one of the Hyperolius viridiflavus superspecies

Check page 178 and 180 of this field guide

These frogs come in hundreds of morphs and taxonomy is a big mess
