Description : Yellow striped Frog is a medium-sized frog, with males typically measuring between 5-6 cm in length, and females slightly larger. They have a bright green coloration with a lighter colored belly. They have a slender body and long legs, with webbed toes that help them swim.

This species of frog is commonly found in a variety of habitats, including wetlands, rice paddies, and other freshwater bodies. They are also found in forests and other areas with dense vegetation.

These Frogs are carnivorous and feed on a variety of small invertebrates, such as insects and spiders.

These frogs are primarily nocturnal, although they can be active during the day in cooler, shaded areas. They are good swimmers and can often be found in water bodies. During the breeding season, males will call out to attract females and establish territory.
Females lay their eggs in shallow water, and tadpoles hatch from the eggs and undergo metamorphosis into juvenile frogs after several weeks. Breeding usually takes place during the monsoon season, which lasts from June to September in India.

Male Frogs produce a loud, distinctive call during the breeding season, which can be heard from a distance of several meters. The call is used to attract females and to establish territorial boundaries.

Habitat loss and pollution are likely to be major threats to this species.
