Gentle reader, beware! The defensive shriek of the Namaqua rain frog (breviceps namaquensis), captured in this video by YouTuber Dean Boshoff, is so shrill, so piercing, that 200-pound grown men have filled their ears with cement to escape its otherworldly cry! Listen for yourself — if you dare!

Brian L. reports: “Bought a DSLR camera for Christmas with no photography experience. Think I got lucky because nearly everyone that has seen these photos has been very complimentary. Helps finally having a nice camera. Obviously a Yorkie…14 wks old. His name is Buddy.”
