The PHG lives.

We have been making regular trips to the Pumps and beyond. Sam has led some exploratory missions to the Ganga. A few others have looked deep into the mine pools between Gurgaon and Faridabad. And we have seen a lot.

Here are some interesting photos from along the way.



Uploaded with
The first is a frog. I think it is a bullfrog but only because it was enormous. The hand in the frame is my daughter's. It's not a giant hand but then it's not little.

A few days later I was at the canal with Vickram Bora and we saw a larger frog. That one was about double the size, I would put that at over 1.5kgs.


And then I got this Sol.


Uploaded with

It was caught on a scumfrog. (he took the frog on the first twitch) The ghilli swore it was over 4.5kgs but the dam scales at home lied and said 3.6kgs. the wonderful thing about this fish were the colours. the head had a deep pinkish orange. The sides were a fantastic orange. The deep green was enhanced by the pearl white spots. One of the most beautiful fish I have ever seen.

Lovely fish Ken, Congratulations.

The frog in question is Rana tigrina. The yellow line on dorsal side is a characteristic marking. they do grow big.

Regards,

Ali. :P

Thanks Guys. I did a quick google and found out a bit more about the Rana. Now I won't sound so stupid in front of my daughter.


Jeen! You are right. None of the colours seem to be caught on film. I have tried three different cameras till now and still no luck.

I don't know if you guys have had the pleasure of looking at a sol when he is all dressed up to go party with a female. You can then see him flash all his colours. Including a bright electric blue that seems to run along the edge of each fin.

Hozefaishaqali!

Yeah she's hooked. Fortunately for me she is into anything that moves, crawls, swims, creeps or slithers. I made the mistake of saying that she would get SLIME on her hands if she touched the frog. She was very upset and corrected me. "It's not slime guys, it's mucus!"
