[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Unknown toad - though seems to be quite common in Abuja. I used to see around 10 of these frogs at night, feeding on mosquitos under a lamp :)

Hello Martin,
As your shot clearly shows the poison glands behind the eyes, this is some species of toad, not frog.
Though the flash has done its job well, this shot is a bit noisy and I would have cropped more on the right side to make abetter composition.
TFS, regards, Ivan
